    Great catch Kurt! That paint has really held up well for sure.

    I have been thinking about how some of the early repaints did not endure decently. After a few years, NP and GN colors were showing through what had been so hastily applied. Seems like a million years ago.

    True, especially the older GP9's that hung out forever-they got one paint job in the 70's after the merger, and that was it!:D

    This is really cheating but still a cool shot from1979. :D A BURLINGTON and a Great NORTHERN box car sandwiched between two green Burlington Northern cars.

    This dapper pair was resting near the signals at west Gavin Yard earlier this month. I was up on an overpass shooting Gavin Tower before it's razed, had to get shots of this pair!

    Pictures like the Trinity 4750 above make me feel old. I got a car and started railfanning just a few years before they were built in 1995. Fortunately, I've aged better than most of them. Some of my favorite memories of mainline BN was long strings of those brand new hoppers or visiting Mullan Pass on the MRL and 13 locomotives trying to get a train of them over the summit, 5 on the point and two sets of 4 helpers.
