    Very cool to see these bright schemes! Even better to see cabeese in 2022 with windows intact!!!

    And here it was 12 years ago, almost to the day:

    The 3000 is actually an SD40-2 internally, even though it looks to be an older SD40. The 3001 is just an SD40 internally, with a 16 cylinder engine.

    Love that they kept the flaired radiator though!:D

    Seems TR is using MP15AC/GP40 combo's in the yards lately...

    Very cool Kurt! I like that the switchers both have slightly different paint schemes. (y)(y)(y)

    Interesting how they call the 3001 an SD40-2. Must have been completely gutted and rebuilt with a 16-645E?

    Business end.. 20220702_171222.jpg 20220702_164224.jpg
    That's the TR shops in the distance on the right, they service BNSF and UP locos here, as well as they're own.
