    Well we all (or most of us) know about the plans BNSF has for doing heritage cabooses. Well I just happened to have found this on a yahoo group I am a part of. It looks like there will be a small fleet of heritage grain hoppers coming too. Get your cameras locked and loaded!

    Here is a link to a photo of one of these cars.

    Considering what he's been hired to do, I doubt they'll be painting much of their own stuff.

    The BNSF could skip the Santa Fe cars, they still have a couple thousand rolling around!

    We do see some AT&SF cars in my vicinity. Old gondolas probably the most often. Can't recall what they're hauling. Something to do with mine tailings or some such loading.

    Same goes with BN. We see a lot of Cascade green here in Illinois. I await the CB&Q stuff!

    I've seen quite a few hoppers still in the BN predecessor paint still, plus BN and ATSF themselves.

    I've been waiting for Intermountain to do these hoppers. It may be time to get an airbrush...

    My wish came true! This month's Intermountain reservations includes three BNSF heritage hoppers.

    I'm glad they are doing them, I figured they would after I made my own BNSF BN Heritage Hopper!
