Right off the bat, this is not my work and I don't know who to give credit to, but they did one fine job!. While looking for some Christmas letter stationary, I came across a notebook with a bunch of RR related stuff from around 1999. The attached photo was one of the things in there.

I wish BNSF would follow the lead of Norfolk Southern and paint some heritage units instead of just slapping old logos on freight cars.

Yep, should've been. That scheme always looked good on the geeps and SD9s. I think my favorite.
