Is it just me, or would it look better if they ditched the swoosh mark and enlarged the typeface of "BNSF"?

U-Haul,

As for the first link, it's dead. You need to re-check/fix it.

As for the second link... Quick, get my spraygun!

I just tried the first link on 5/2/07 1839 hours EST and it worked.
I do not understand the spraygun joke, but I am guessing you do not like the BNSF Warbonnet.

Warbonnet was better.

uhaul,

No, I'm very much a fan of the "Warbonnet."

I was making commentary on BNSF (or any other railroad) wanting conformity among their fleet.

Two questions, not related really to the thread, was this always a B unit, and what is the story with the fire damage in the second photo?

BNSF 332 was a GP60B from the factory and always will be a GP60B.
I think there might have been an oil leak or something that caught on fire. I am not an expert, but that is my educated guess.

THIS IS KINDA BIG DEAL
A SD45-2 is now in H3 paint. A BNSF -9 lost its Warbonnet.

uhaul urged,

"THIS IS KINDA BIG DEAL"

How so? A second-gen diesel on BNSF? I know many of those 45s are getting cut up, but there's a bunch of second-gen power on BNSF... heck, there's still FIRST-GEN power on BNSF. How about one of the "Cadillacs" done up in H-3, now that would be sharp.

Oh, and I think the popular opinion of the members of this forum agree with you on the "cigar band" paint scheme over the H3.

As for the posting of the "roasted pumpkin," it's a BNSF unit, this is the BNSF thread, it does have something to do with the paint scheme, so I'll allow it.

"It's so unappealing on so many levels, It's hard to know what to criticize first."

Seriously, though, I can't believe that Rose would approve of such an abomination! :P

BNSF 'New Image' Scheme.

Post by BNSFrailfan » Mon Feb 11, 2008 11:00 am

Sure the 'New Image' Scheme looks very nice. But why so many Paint/Logo Schemes? Come on now.
