So, have there been any sighting of our dear SD-7, anywhere of late??  Last seen on the BNSF down toward Keddie, CA.

Currently at Barstow, CA.  Due to leave for Kansas City, KS very early AM the morning of Oct. 2.

That locomotive is sure taking the scenic route to get to KC. It's a wonder why they didn't send it east over the MRL.

Locomotive movements often take on a life of their own. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the unit winds up taking a tour of most of the BNSF system before finally arriving at its destination.

Cool…thanks Christi.

It looks so little next to that barn on the back end of that pumpkin.

Sad to see this engine headed to the scrap pile. Ran this engine many times on the LA hump job.
Was checking the price of heavy melting steel is $ 215.34 a ton. Copper tubing $ 2.70 a ton. Since the engine can't run anymore guess its economically prudent to melt it down.

I think she’ll be alright. Buddy of mine who works for P&W says now that she’s going to Oklahoma and will be left completely intact.

I figure if they were going to scrap her…why not just do it right down the street at the cost of a couple bucks…instead of hauling her clear across country for more than they would get to scrap her.
