Trains on google street view.

Can't have signals without railroads, so talk about your favorite locomotives, railroads and any other (non signal) railroad related stuff.

1/3 engines correct. Both units in the first link are SD40-2's while the 8203 is a C45AH (UP Designation)/ES44AC-H (GE Designation) The last unit is Correct!

The last link isn't correct.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Two Santa Fe GP39-2 locmotives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Sadly, ATSF 2798 has now been painted into BNSF's Phase III scheme.

It's also worth pointing out that this crossing no longer exists.

That would be UP 8970.

Yea, a lot of the ex-ATSF engines have since been repainted by BNSF, or are in storage.

This is amazing!
https://www.google.com/maps/@35.5001809 ... 312!8i6656
But the real question is. Why the need for a heckton of locomotives, and where are the Phase III's at?

GSV also managed to catch this!

However, no locomotives to be seen.

The locomotives are probably being transported to somewhere.

Those SD70MACs are/were in storage, and very few (if any at all) were ever repainted into H3 by BNSF before almost all of them were shoved into storage.
