BN Tulsa OK

BN 2922 was built 5-1963 as T&P GP35 #612

Became MP 2606 (in MoPac blue)

In 1978, it was one of eighteen MP GP35’s rebuilt with a 16-cylinder non-turbocharged 645 engine at North Little Rock shops, and became MP GP35M 2606.

It was acquired by Union Pacific in the 1980 UP-MP merger, and was repainted into UP colors with MP lettering on August 14, 1984, one of only two ever so repainted. All of the GP35M’s were used in local service around North Little Rock until stored in 1985.

This unit was sold to Helm Financial, becoming Helm Leasing Corp HLCX 2606 on August 10, 1987. It was leased as Kiamichi Railroad 2606 from April 13, 1988 until February, 1989, when it was returned as HLCX 2606.

It was sold to EMD in May, 1989, and was rebuilt as Burlington Northern GP39E 2922, released February 28, 1990. It became BNSF 2922 in the 1995 merger.
