Richard Burdick General 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 5/7/2008 1:38:16 PM

steven langsford General Nice photo!!! 7/16/2009 4:13:45 PM
Gary Brugger General 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. 12/22/2009 11:34:45 AM
