Ex-Oakways on the MRL

2 EMD ex-Oakway SD60's lead an eastbound manifest through the yards on the MRL at Missoula, MT, on July 4. Interestingly, we saw these two units on a NB in Bend, OR, on July 2 as we left town to start our week-long Montana vacation, and we see them here 2 days later.
Great catch. I haven't seen these on BNSF before while railfanning Denver & Oakland, only on NS in Montreal. Are these assigned to the North-West for maintenance perhaps? I'll be in Missoula in two weeks! Hopefully they're still around.
