Time for a BN break
Author: alco636

Here is some classic BN power.

#1 BN 5324 a GE U30C. A BN only lashup. U30C and two F45s.

#2 BN 6608 a former GN F45.

#3 Note the black frame on the 6608 as compared to the factory painted 6633 behind her. One small difference in a sea of green paint in the 1970s. I sure miss those old F45s. Always liked seeing them.

Hey Al, BN that we've recently been discussing scanners and editing software - you might want to use the cloning tool to eliminate the dust in those shots. If you have "ICE" with your scanner software, that may do it automatically.

Thanks for the BN shots - Green is easier on the eyes than Pumpkin Orange!

Nice shots!

Here's a lash-up of four on train 129(eastbound grain empties) thru Grotto Washington west of Skykomish on Stevens pass, winter 1979 or so.

They sure looked better than any of the newer GE Dash whatevers with the wide cabs, etc

"ICE" will not work with Kodachrome.

I did turn on the ICE feature. Hows this look? I'll rescan the F45 & U30C slides to see how different they end up with ICE on.

Here are the original three with ICE on. Thanks so much for the help! Looks much better. Now if I could go back in time too...

Sweet! I liked the F45s too and espically the GN ones with the headlights mounted above the windshield and between the numberboards.

Those first scans look much better, Al.

Tony J has a wayback machine but he never advertises
his excursions, just comes back and posts incredible
photos.

I'm glad to have even seen any BN Green!
Thanks for all the "Hill" shots!
