3/8/17: A rarity in local service. Nice looking H-1 BNSF ex-ATSF SuperFleet GP60B at Hodgkins, IL... along with a pair of B40-8Ws the power on the Galesburg local; LCHI-102. Note the dynamic break bulge located at the right end of the hood.
At first I thought I was looking at an ep classic.. but no..this is 2017... Nice catch, nice shot!!
Thanks man... I hear they can still be found on the Galesburg local where I've caught them before. That run still uses standard cab geeps and the C40-8Ws. I really liked it when they briefly used the SD60Ms
very cool catch. wish there were more B units around
Sweet catch! I think BNSF is the last railroad to uses these kinds of engines in regular freight service.
Even on BNSf they are not that easy to catch.
Rare to see a booster unit.
