BNSF 1727
Author: burlingtonjohn

BNSF 1727, ex BNSF 6154, ex BN 6154, nee CB&Q 352. Built August 1955, bn 20562 was at West Quincy Missouri today, 28 Oct 17. The unit was dead sitting on the ready track with several other pumpkins. Unknown status, unknown destination. Haven't seen an SD9 'round these parts in a long time....

Burlington John

Wow, I didn't know they had any remaining in green. It'll be interesting to see where it winds up.

Wow, one month younger than I am. It has certainly held its figure better than I have!

Officially, it's GN 1727. It's been stored for so long that they just now are giving it new AEI tags reflecting that. The real BNSF 1727 is a SD40-2. It's headed to a "Brookfield, MO museum".

Is it going to stay in BN paint, or get Q paint?
