Awaiting Their Fate

Galveston Island. Texas

Retired Burlington Northern Santa Fe locomotives waiting to be shipped off to other countries. There are about 100 of them altogether.
I was excited to see (geeking out) the one with the old 1990 Burlington Northern Executive paint scheme - the green and and tan on the right.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Neat shot! It's good they are getting recycled.

Great shot. It could be used for journalistic purposes in a railroad magazine. Glad that all the locomotive power in this yard is not going to waste.

Very cool and I am glad they are getting new homes. Great lineup! V

Love this shot, yet something poignant about it too. V

That's really cool. My favorite H.O. engine was a Burlington Northern Black and Green.

a strong encounter with major powers...there are clearly stylistic variations along with the different colour shame geeking out Lynn, as at least you know your stuff..

Great shot of the engines, and interesting the different colors. V.

So cool! (and I am so envious) What is the white and blue one to the left of the BN Executive painted one? ~BV~
