Mike Ferguson, BNSF conductor trainee, caught GP-38-2 numbers 2001 and 2006 in brand-spanking new paint at BNSF's Yardly in Spokane, Washington on May 18, 2007.


Winter weather in Anchorage on December 6, 2002.   No snow, no frost, no ice, 47 degress F. as Alaska Railroad # 2001 basks in the mid day low sun.   This work  horse reflects the range of weathering suffered by Alaska locomotives in  the faded paint and dirt accumulation.   For modelers trying to capture  this effect PolyS #414221 CSX Blue and CNW Yellow will get you there.
