CF7s in Breckenridge Yard. It didn't look like they are used all that often. The one on the right is a slug, not sure if the other has been neutered also.

Loading ballast in Waite Park at the Martin Marietta plant near St Cloud MN. They split the train up, shove a cut up and then pull west to load. The conveyor dumps in the primary load and the CAT loaded tops them off. The 7043 is on the second half. The NLR crew will put the train back together and bring it back to the yard in St.Cloud for the BNSF.

Northern Lines Railway GP15-1s look good in BN colors. The 421 is a former BN unit, the 422 is a former C&NW unit. Both were painted at different shops hence the two different styles of lettering and shades of green.
