Burlington Northern 5492
BN 5492 photo here
Burlington Northern's roster included only eight 4-axle Dash-7 GE locomotives, none of which were purchased firsthand from the builder. They were acquired on 21 November 1980 through the merger with St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco). The eight 3000-hp locos were repainted in the BN scheme and numbers 5485-5492 applied. This Erik Edmonds image shows B30-7 5492 at McCook, Il on 1 December 1991; it was the only four-axle GE to get the "white-face" treatment.
