Port of Oakland

The Oakland Railport has a pretty simple design one public 4-lane road occupied by truckers hauling IMS, with BNSF & UP yards on either side. Sadly UP IMS equipment (SP for the most part) blocks the shop view. BNSF on the other hand runs in a circle, allowing the whole operation to be observed from public property. Interestingly their yard lead crosses the road and runs alongside UPs IMS yard, before terminating in a dead end. Thats where this ex-BN SD60M is shoving at least 30 empties. Always enjoy seeing these units come through Sutherland in SOO paint. Im surprised BNSF put it in yard duty

Note: Port of Oakland on the cranes in the background.
There you go, Roman! You managed to see something really unusual when you were out there...not many classic SD60Ms in BNSF paint!
Thanks guys, Elijah - I caught at least two more versions. BN 3-window and BN widecab with US Flags.
