    Thumbs down

    Take a look at this link:
    http://www.bnsf.com

    Say it aint so!!!!

    I guess this will mean that I can no longer model current BNSF. I wasn't a huge fan of the Pumpkin scheme but I could live with it. This just spits in the face of a good railroad. As a graphic designer by trade, I am usually happy with progress... not in this case. :-(

    Did an edit to see if I could get the logo to come up.

    At least the GN-reminiscient heritage colors are still here. It sure looks wierd, considering the decade of Pumpkins with a BNSF 'cross' logo...

    Anyone seen one yet?

    And look at that - the famous (?) #740, co-bearer of the H2 prototype scheme! Or do you think they just photoshopped that in?

    It looks photoshopped , specially the side .
    I just checked Railpicture for BNSF # 740 and what they have is the "old" design .

    So the "cross in circle" or "cigar band" logo that they got from Santa Fe will be no more , that is sad ....

    One more time of the old one :

    Thanks , Louis

    Speaking as a non-BNSF fan, I hate this idea. The original BNSF jobs, either Heritage or H2, were a good idea as a nod to the history of the road, much as (the despised) UP has held its image steady, at least so far as paint goes. This I suppose we could call the "Nike" scheme. Swoosh!

    It couldnt have been repainted?

    Since the photo your showing is old and crappy, adn the new scheme is all new paint... so it could be infact - real?
    For no other reason except so I can find my folder next time;
    My images, not much really
