I waited for the New Mexico RailRunner in Belen, NM. The station is adjacent to a BNSF train yard, and in the few minutes I was there, one freight train passed through. I snapped a few photos of the locomotives with my cell phone camera.
I always like seeing CSX locomotives. It’s an east coast thing.
BNSF 5261 probably had a fire, based on the missing paint at the “F”. According to the railroad safety course I took a few years back, a locomotive can burn, be stripped of hoses, belts and interior, repainted and sent back on its way for significantly less than replacing the locomotive.
BNSF 2882 was likely a Burlington Northern locomotive before the merger, based on the color scheme:
I hope you enjoyed my post and the photos!
