BNSF 7518

I know how conceited it sounds to admit I was rather impressed with how my photos of BNSF 7518 turned out the other day. I was looking at my post and I thought: I wonder how this would look in black and white. Okay, that’s a lie. I was thinking: Wow, these turned out great! I wonder how this would look in black and white.

I do think there’s something special about black and white photographs of trains. I don’t just mean of old steam engines, either; I think these diesels have some character in black and white too. The only thing is, we lose the brilliant orange livery of BNSF.

Mixed Freight — BNSF 7518

A trio of DC-powered locomotives — led by BNSF 7518 (GE ES44DC) — makes up the front of this mixed freight train. BNSF 966 and BNSF 4184 are a pair of GE DASH 9-44CWs.

At the tail end of the train was this lone GE ES44C4 (BNSF 5536), the sole AC-powered locomotive of the train.
