Notes

Craig Walker has prepared a comprehensive listing ( 2014) of all BNSF units that wear the New Image. Additions and revisions would be appreciated.

SD70ACe serial numbers and builder dates are current as 12/2014 thanks to data from Ralph Back via LocoNotes.

** Per Sean Graham-White, 2015 deliveries may be classified as straight ES44C4s or ES44C4-T4CUs (Tier 4 Credit Units).

Note A

All units are ex-Burlington Northern. There is some uncertainty surrounding the 3110-3162 series, as to whether units are GP50s, GP50-3s, or GP25s-2. Here is an attempt to provide a little clarification. The horsepower rating for all of the units in this series has been dropped from the original 3500 hp. Those units rated at 2500 hp (turbo-charger removed) and classified as GP25-2s by BNSF include at lease: 3110-3115, 3117-3119, 3121-3123, 3125-3128, 3130-3131, 3135-3144, 3146-3147, 3149-3150, 3152-3155, 3157, 3159, 3161 and 3186. Units de-rated to 3000 hp (or 3300 hp) that may retain there GP50 classification include: 3116, 3120, 3124, 3133-3134, 3145, 3148, 3151, 3156, and 3160. Those units, which have 2950 hp rating and have undergone other modifications, are classified as GP50-3s by the railroad and include: 3132, 3158, and 3162

Note D

Ex-ATSF units #800-852 (even #s only) were sold to Canadian National as 2135-2161.

Many #801-853 units are slated to be removed from roster, along 856, 861, 864 and 866. Final destination unknown. (Maybe the CN?)

Note E

BNSF 100 and 130 may have received some type of Tier 3 emissions kit. The locos are to undergo a three-month break-in period in Transcon service before going to Topeka for additional testing. It is unknown whether the performance enhancing modifications necessitated revisions to the prime mover or installation of new exhaust scrubbing equipment.

GENERAL NOTES:

  • Units with a 2nd ATSF # in the 7200-7229 number series were painted in the red/yellow SPSF "Kodachrome" scheme.
  • BNSF 1576 upward were assigned the GN reporting mark to the 1st BNSF # before rebuilt.
  • BNSF 1576 upward that have a 1st ATSF # from the ATSF SD45-2 5625-5661 number series have the small front drop step replaced with a wider/stronger front anti-climber.

  • This section was updated and expanded by Ralph Back (based on data from LocoNotes).
Rebuilt Power - BNSF got a few rebuilds during November that were GP39-3Rs rebuilt from ex ATSF GP35s. On November 10th, 2628 was released from Relco in Albia, IA. The 2628 started off life as ATSF 1431 that was renumbered to 3431 in the 1969 & 1970 general renumbering. It was rebuilt in kind to the 2931 in the early 80s then was re-numbered to the 2631 for the BNSF merger. It was later re-lettered as GN 2631 before it became the new BNSF 2628. On November 3rd, BNSF got the 2 629 from Relco. It was originally the TP&W 902 that became ATSF 3464 when ATSF merged the TP&W into its system in 1983. It was shortly rebuilt in kind (with dynamic brakes added) in 1984 to ATSF 2963. It carried that number until re-numbered to BNSF 2645 for the BNSF merger and was lter re-numbered to GN 2645 before being rebuilt to the 2629. This was one of the last GP35s in service on BNSF before it was pulled to be re-built. It appears that there are three other GP35s still in service; they are the 2515, 2572 and 2626. BNSF got one more 3GS21C-DE from NRE during November -- the 1311 that is rebuilt from a former Santa Fe SD45-2. The BNSF computer shows this engine rebuilt from former BNSF 6507, but that core was actually used for the 1315.

Lease Units - BNSF continues to lease units from CP. There are actually 4 more on lease this month. Four more AC4400CWs (9506, 9511, 9543 and 9550) are now on lease, making a total of 63 CP engines. The lease fleet still includes the CREX ES44ACs, the CEFX SD40-2s and SD60, the NREX SD60s, and several PRLX GP38-2, GP40-2 and SD60Ms.

In addition to the CP engines that were returned off lease in October, BNSF returned a few more off lease in the form of the CEFX SD90MACs. At the end of October and early November, all 6 of the SD90MACs were returned to Northtown for CEFX and lease termination. They were numbered 105, 125, 130, 133, 136 & 137.
