    A few pics I snapped with my cell this morning when I was heading home from dropping my daughter off at school. The yard was unusually busy this morning.

    This is the first SOO I've seen as well.

    Somebody must have painted the engines overnight. :D

    I'm gonna have to start taking my real camera if this action keeps up.

    They changed again when I went to pic my daughter up from preschool! :eek:
    I think this is the most active I've ever seen our yard. I just wish the pic of the Electromotive was a little better.

    I can't make out the current reporting marks, but I know I've seen shots before of ex-SOO SD60s with the name crossed out like that. Whichever leasing company it is, they're leased to BNSF currently.

    You'd think they wouldn't be so tight and just repaint the engine rather than scratching out the name like that.... :D

    Just look at the amount of BN and Santa Fe power around. Railroads aren't very quick at repainting anymore.

    Actually, that's the first real "Santa Fe" I have seen for awhile.
    Most of them still have their original colors but the Santa Fe or BN has been painted over with BNSF.
