From rrpicturearchives, it seems like BNSF is renumbering some of its slugs in the 261-271 range, right after the TEBC6 SD9 slug rebuilds. Some slugs from 3967 through 3977 have been photographed, with most being repainted into H3 if photographed, and the other just having a patch.

Could anybody verify this for me, or add anything else about the renumbering/retirement for BNSF's other slugs?
