Freshly Painted BNSF GP38-2 Diesels in Colorado Springs
April 7, 2010
Burlington Northern Santa Fe GP38-2 units took the siding southbound to meet a northbound BNSF freight, just north of downtown Colorado Springs near Fillmore Street. The GP38-2 diesels, numbered 2,260 and 2,272, were built for BNSF predecessor St. Louis - San Francisco (Frisco) by General Motors in 1,973. Both units, originally numbered SLSF 405 and 417 respectively, were renumbered Burlington Northern 2,260 and 2,272 in 1,981. They retained their BN numbers after the BNSF merger. The warm colors and long shadows of trucks passing by on nearby Interstate 25 reveal that it is sunset, about 6pm on this cool Monday evening, March 22, 2,010.
