A BNSF Sampler of Old and New






BNSF motive power is not a rare sight in Northeast Ohio, but it is still a treat to see when it shows up on the point of a CSX or Norfolk Southern train.

One particular nice BNSF treat was leading the L138 on the east side of Ravenna recently on the CSX New Castle Subdivision. This is pure BNSF power and not some rent a wreck.

No. 1592 was ordered for the Colorado & Southern and spent many years working in Burlington Northern green before receiving its current “pumpkin” treatment.

Don’t remember if the BNSF 7119 was whistling as it passed this graveyard, but it is shown here on CSX in Middleburgh Heights. Another modern BNSF unit with the “Swoosh” logo leads the Q375 through Akron.

Finally, a westbound K train had empty tankers has a “Grinstein” unit trailing as it comes through Cuyahoga Falls. That’s the remnant of the former CA&C/PRR/CR line to Hudson off to the left.
