I got this pic. of the conductor's side of BNSF SD60M #9297 up in Whitefish. This was one of several locomtives that BNSF painted in expirimental paint schemes early on. #9297 is especialy unique because BNSF put 1 expirimental paint scheme on the conductor's side & another version on the engineer's side. I personaly like this paint scheme ( the one on the conductor/bbrakeman/fireman side), I think it's a pretty sweet paint scheme. I believe it's the paint scheme on the engineer's side that later on was slightly modified & went on to become BNSF's Heritage I paint scheme.
I beleve that is an SD60M... Nice shot. The unit was used for a paint scheme experament I think.
