Re: What hath BNSF wrought?! (New Logo/Paint Scheme)

The faster the BNSF Railway paints over the hideous "warbonnet" units the better, there has never been a more over rated color scheme in railroading history than that thing, I hate it, along the old Santa Fe railway company, they thought they were "God's Railroad", best thing that ever happened is ...

Railfanning - Barstow CA

Hi all; I hope everyone is well. I hope to visit Barstow CA next Friday between 7:30am-13:00. A few questions - do trains pass at speed here photography wise or given its a yard more slowly? I have picked a day with cloudy weather forecast as I’m aware the sun will backlit photos from the station. A...

The others seemingly still going strong.

6236, 6310, 6318, 6367, 6378, 6379, 6406 all still SP as is 6290 apparently. So in fact still for now right remain. Nice they last well into 2019

Re: Union Pacific ES44AC's left in Southern Pacific livery..

A update. Still just seven in the Southern Pacific livery as listed above. No further reprints so they have made it into July at least. Any further ahead remains to be seen.

Re: Union Pacific ES44AC's left in Southern Pacific livery..

Thanks for the information; Easter saw a purge on SP units; Now just seven remain; 6236, 6248, 6310, 6318, 6367, 6379, 6406. Conflicting reports on Hertiage Units suggested 6248 was done but a couple of recent photos on Flickr one only a couple of days ago still show in carrying the Southern Pacific...

Are these the yellowgreen ones of the same number range? Or a different unit type completely?

Wayside wrote:Yes BNSF is a class I. As for not being the lead unit, the foreign road power is often not fixed up with the same signal or automatic train stop equipment as the host road, so they have to be trailers.
Many thanks for that! You learn something every day.

Re: UP ‘loco hire in’ engine hour swaps?

Many thanks for that information. Another Norfolk Southern spotted today. Most times the borrowed units are tucked behind the lead UP loco(s) but I have seen them banking and in the middle! Are BNSF class 1? Given how local they are they don’t appear as much! Only once last year did I catch a pair o...

UP ‘loco hire in’ engine hour swaps?

Hey all; I’m sure someone can help but how do other railroads borrow units from others? Is this done on a miles basis or engine hours? I assume railroads all at some part on their network link up to allow sharing of motive power? For example in Vegas over the last week a good 1/3 of the trains I’ve ...

Still 21 flying the SP flag. So probably they’ll make the spring. After that is anyone’s guess.
