    They are sending most of their older locomotives to scrap.

    That was a bit difficult to watch. Start, stop, start, stop..... Slo-mo....

    I am guessing most of these, or all, have been out of service and stored.

    During the freeze frames, I like that the origin of each unit was provided. A lot of history going to scrap.

    That SDP40 would be a supreme catch if it was on a train under power. I didn’t know any survived to become BNSF locomotives.

    I love those old ex-GN SDP40's:love:
    Hopefully it gets saved from the scrapper's torch!

    Sister unit BNSF 6325 (ex-GN 323) lives to haul another day as GRD 9043 on the Gardendale (TX) RR.

    All these units really go to the scrapyard (even the pulling Dash 9 ?) ? No chance for them to be landing on a shortline ?

    Great shot! I had to take a second look (my glasses). I thought the logo was a "Veggie Tales" pickle. :D
