    Hummm. "If ain't broke, don't fix it" (or something like this).

    Sorry, I'm a fan of ol' "Warbonnet" paint scheme. :oops:

    The Warbonnet looks best with the original Santa Fe logo, and looks like an afterthought when changed to BNSF. :eek: I like the newer Heritage paint scheme, and like this new scheme even better. :thumb: I'll keep my eye out for one since the BNSF runs not too far from our house, but so far all I ever see is every combination of SF, BN and BNSF possible, but none like they show there. :rolleyes:

    I would say the warbonnet was the best paint scheme. I just watched a show last night Trains & Locomotives, & it was about the Santa Fe's WarBonnet ( Red & Silver ). Was a very interesting show. BNSF is not that common around these parts, but when they do come through i will keep my eye open and watch for the new scheme. I also like the BNSF's paint scheme.

    The main thing I hate about the BNSF paint schemes is that I don't like orange and the green isn't my favorite either. Of all of the colors of the railroads making up the BN they picked the worst colors in my oppinion.

    Orange and green were my High School colors, and it is (IMHO) gawd-awful-FUGLY!

    Looks like BNSF is trying to kill all the heritage of the Santa Fe....

    Yeah, I don't think BNSF did themselves a favor when they adopted this new logo. A lot of the local BNSF guys are now calling the new logo "the Wedgie....".

    I think it fits !

    Green and orange reminds me of peas and carrots...

    For some reason, that new logo screams "Buck Rogers!" :p
