    That's impressive .... And no, I'm not done yet, but when I am I hope mine turns out even a fraction of how good yours did. Great job.:thumb: :thumb:

    2 years, or so? When I get a house to build in, lol. I know, I'm weird!

    Actually... The tower IS blue again. At some time around the late 80's early 90's Santa Fe painted it all gray, albeit 2 tone, somewhere in the Late 90's early 00's BNSF (when replacing the Santa Fe text with the BNSF logo) repainted it back to blue. Its blue now, though I'm not completely sure if the Swoosh is there yet.

    Oh as a side note, I model always modern, so this guy, along with everything else will chance with time.

    Ah, Eddie, a fellow BNSF fan & modeler (just as nuts, if not more then me with BNSF locomotives) posted this pic for me...

    Just hope he doesn't mind me using it... I'll remove it if he disproves.
