I went to the BNSF Newton Kansas service area, and found the following:
BNSF 5543
BNSF 2758 & BNSF 554
BNSF 7688 (stack capped,likely going to the dead line)
BNSF 554, the unit that defies going to the storage line
BNSF 8186
BNSF 8060
I found the dead line of stored power, so I clicked off the ones I could see from the road:
BNSF 7830
BNSF 7212
BNSF 7776
BNSF 5286
BNSF 7625
BNSF 7532
BNSF 7713
BNSF 7849
BNSF 7874
BNSF 7703
BNSF 7453

Don't you just hate it when power poles photo-bomb the fine images you are trying to make. It happens to me all the time in our local yard.
We don't seem to get a lot of graffito applied to the CN engines in my area. The fake artist's/vandals in you're area must be a bit more brazen.

Yeah the poles can be pains in the arse. I don't know where those units came from before being stored here, I'm guessing LA, Chicago or some other large metro area is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
