One-of-a-kind in Bend, OR

"New" BNSF GP60 168 showed up yesterday as local power in Bend, OR, on the Oregon Trunk Sub. It is ex-HLCX 7700, received it's red paint while on lease to the Vermont Railway, and was originally purchased by the Texas-Mexican Railway. Sister BNSF 169 (still in T-M green) was wrecked last week in Pasco, WA, after only being on the BNSF roster for a couple of weeks.
It's probably a good thing it leaft Pasco Sunday night/MOnday morning. Who knows what would have happened to it. Glad to see you got a picture of it.
