An in-service-again BNSF SD75M leads a northbound baretable train on BNSF's OT Sub., as it crosses the lava beds south of Bend, OR.A little over-exposed, but I was in manual mode, and the black rocks and bright blue sky had me bewildered as to where to set my camera!
This ES44DC was leading the Northbound that the 1050 was in. Even though the headlights are on, the train is tied down and I didn't see anyone in the cab. Interesting to see that the 7600's are already fading....
I was driving past Cascan today, and saw this unit sitting on a Northbound that was tied down on the main. The 1050 was delivered with a standard H1 paint job, but somewhere along its life has picked up the H2 lettering on the side of the hood. As far as I know, this is the only C44-9W that...
It is getting more and more difficult to find an H1 C44-9W on the point of a train these days. With BNSF repainting sister unit 981 into the H3 paint, a locomotive I have seen twice in H3, I can take a guess that BNSF is slowly repainting thier H1 fleet. However, BNSF 1000 also came through...
BNSF C44-9W 690 is still wearing the red and silver warbonnet colors of the Santa Fe, including the origanial Santa Fe lettering. However, it looks like this unit is a good canadate for a new H3 swoosh paint job now.
This Soo Line SD60 was the second unit back on a Southbound BNSF manifest though Bend today. I didn't get a full consist shot, but I wish I had. Consist was BNSF C44-9W 4008, Soo SD60 6021, BNSF C44-9W 4009. Photo was taken near the North siding switch at Cascan in Bend.
This C44-9W was trailing ES44DC 7475 on an Executive train in Bend. Why they needed 8800 horsepower on a seven car train was beyond me, but it was neat to get the chance to get some comparison shots between an ES44 and a C44-9W for modelling.
