    Wow - great weathering job! I'm hoping to do the same thing when the "patch" decals come in to a few older Santa Fe units I have.

    Thanks guys! That gray DB is not longer gray, the original was an extended range DB which the prototype did not have.

    I'd Forgotten How Many Santa Fe Locomotives I Have...

    I start with this one bcs it's got my only BNSF diesel:

    Here's an ancient mariner (in model RR terms):

    The "Safety Stripe Group" could use a bit of dusting off - they've been in storage a while...

    Let's not forget the blue-and-yellow scheme:

    Last but certainly not least, some motive power from way before BNSF was even an idea in somebody's head:
    [​IMG]
    All the motive power works for a living on my railroad -- even the old steamer, normally assigned to the excursion runs, gets called back to freight service when I'm short diesels due to them having run off the interchange tracks into the "rest of the world". :mrgreen:

    I had forgotten about this triple-header shot from my old layout until it popped up on my screensaver...

    Gus, I personally wish the Barf Bonnet had shown up on more then just that one engine. She recently had a turbo fire, and someone repainted the burn in the original colors, which is nice.
