DPU in a Winter Wonderland — BNSF 9378

I’ve been showing off the artwork of nature, but I really like the contrast of BNSF 9378 (EMD SD70ACe) with the background. Note, this particular engine doesn’t have an isolated cab and thus will only be used in a DPU capacity.

      Check out the cab on BNSF 9055 (https://reamystotheright.com/2018/04/06/serving-up-an-ace-ii-bsnf-9055/). You’ll see a black line under the road number that angles down to the base plate of the locomotive. BNSF 9378 doesn’t have that isolation seal or whatever it’s called. Since the isolated cab is an ergo/crew comfort thing, they don’t use the non-isolation cabs as prime movers any more. I guess that also means they don’t have to worry about adding the Positive Train Control to those engines either.
