Burlington Northern 3084

Here is a photo of me in Burlington Northern 3084 in Gibson Yard. I think it was taken in the late 80's or early 90's.

Can anyone tell me what ever happened to this locomotive?

Its somewhere on the Rail America system. It was on the CORP after being retired by the BN Feb 92.

Those units didn't last long on the BN...not sure why either as they where rebuilt and then leased to the BN.

They lasted from 1979 to 1997 on the BN. There was something wired about the long term lease on these these. Something like the KCS financed them for the FRisco.

Woops, I guess I spoke to soon. I was thinking this was a BN GP40-2. Weren't these leased from GATX alsong with Some SD40's? BN Photo Archives shows them as GP40G's and the SD40G's.
