ES44DC — BNSF 7547

IMG_1150

Sitting at either the front or the back, depending on your view, of a short consist in the Pueblo rail yard sits BNSF 7547. This engine is a GE ES44DC, similar to the ES44AC in most aspects but with DC traction motors instead of AC traction motors.

It’s hooked up to BNSF 3799, one of BNSF’s Tier IV ET44C4s. You can really see the difference in height between the last generation and the next generation engine.
