I think western slope too but can't figure it out yet.
Been doing some searching via Google Maps, still haven't narrowed it down yet, but it's certainly Western Slope.
But in the meantime....
BN F7B 737, ex-Northern Pacific 6015B, Minneapolis, MN, April 4, 1973 (Bob Jordan)
CN 4-8-4 6300, Fort Erie, Ontario, 1950s (Paul Mayer)
Wash rack? What wash rack? Actually this says a lot about the actual condition of BN, back during those years= An absolute mess. If you weren't around them back then, you have no idea.
Judging by the condition of the locomotives I have images of, it certainly seem that things weren't in the best of shape.
And now a pair of Rebels
Brand New GM&O GP38 719, Bloomington, IL, August 1969 (Fred Byerly)
GM&O RS-1 1122, Chicago, IL, August 1963 (Fred Byerly)
Bill, here's a photo of GM&O 1900, in case you don't have one. It was the only locomotive built by Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, MS.
Ingalls hoped to get into the diesel locomotive business after WW-II, but couldn't compete with the big boys, especially EMD.
Wow!! Never knew of this or it's existence!
Thanks! I wish I'd come across a view of this rather unique locomotive but alas, nothing.
However, speaking of rare things, here we have GM&O DR6-4-2000 280 on the scrap line in Jackson, TN, June 1965 (Fred Byerly)
For those curious, below is a builder's photo of this same locomotive procured from the internet

Amtrak Dome-Dorm-Coffee Shop 9813 "Silver Cup", Denver, CO, May 1973 (Bob Jordan)
I'm guessing that the Silver Cup was former CB&Q? Evoking thoughts of splendor, the Q had the most inventive and wonderful car names.
"Silver Cup" sounds like reference to a racing trophy of some type.
It is one of CB&Q's many "Silver" cars. And for those curious, that car still exists at some undisclosed location.

Santa Fe GP7 2866 doing some switching work with waycar 999095 in April of 1974 (Bob Jordan)
That's a nice comparison of the F-7A and the FP-7.
Amtrak Dome Coach 9460, ex-GN 1320, Denver, CO, June 1974 (Bob Jordan)
Amtrak Dome-Lounge 9370, ex-SP 3601, Denver, CO, June 1974 (Bob Jordan)
Amtrak Bar-Lounge 8350, ex-NP Traveller's Rest 494, Denver, CO, June 1974 (Bob Jordan)
Burlington Northern F7B 717, ex-NP 6009D, July 1973 (Bob Jordan)
BN F9A 832, ex-Northern Pacific 7009A, in possibly Denver, April 1973 (Bob Jordan)
A trio of ex-Northern Pacific F-Units (A F9A ex-6705A, a F7B ex-6009B, and a F9B ex-6710B), July 1973 (Bob Jordan)
BN 832 was the very last F to run in Western Washington.
CB&Q 5632 waiting to go with an excursion in July of 1960 (Anyone recognize the location?) (????)
BN F9B 775, ex-Northern Pacific 6704B, May 1974 (Bob Jordan)
Photo of 5632 is very impressive. Though what I like most is there ain't no stinking infernal combustion diesel behind as "insurance".
