Blue In My Bonnet

“With the distant Minneapolis skyline providing the backdrop, BNSF’s Coon Creek turn, L TWI8121 16I, slowly zigs and zags its way through Northtown Yard ducking beneath the hump on its departure out with 27 cars. Assigned on today’s train is a not so common EMD GP60 locomotive still sporting its original blue and yellow "Bluebonnet” paint scheme. BNSF 167 began life for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe in May of 1988 as ATSF 4008, part of a twenty locomotive order by the railroad. Prior merger with competitor Burlington Northern in 1995, this four-axle was once tasked with hauling some of the railroad’s hottest intermodal trains across the country but has since been regulated to yard and local freight assignments, such as the case here. Short of a BNSF patch job, a number change and some barely noticeable PTC equipment up top, this locomotive looks just as it did brand new nearly 32 years ago". Photo by Joseph Wagner.
