bnsf old gp-9. The stories it could tell.
This picture is part of album:
I am not sure how many of the old GP's wound up wearing BNSF Orange/Green,but probably not many...still sad to see an old veteran such as this one put out to pasture

I ran this engine many a time. In the comp it says its ok'ed for an engine swap. The main generator burnt up, thats what put it out to pasture.

Hey, ma, where's my pants!? From the date of this photo, this old girl could be toasters, razor blades and microwave ovens already. Not a pretty sight!

1702 print from Aberdeen in 1987 sits on my office wall in 16X20. This loco spent a winter underwater when assigned to the Camas Prairie - I think in the early/mid 1970s. It was hauled out in the spring and rebuilt with it's chopped nose. Hated to see it go.

I saw 1600 in Tacoma today in the yard. She looked complete and ready for work!

Got a short cab ride in her at Pasco, May 2002. Also have photos of her as BN 1702 at Potlatch, ID. Will try to post soon.
