I agree. 

I wasn't aware that BNSF had any SD75's left, but that pair was looking good.

They have a lot of them…but most of them are in storage. I’ll try to get an exact number for you.

They’d rather let them sit because they burn more fuel…than make any $$$ running freight with them :/

A super catch and excellent video!  The SD75's really look and sound great.
Thanks for your video posting.

Thanks for that information. Exact number is not necessary. It was just something that I was not expecting to see.
