Interesting sequence! As an ex-RRer I can imagine 2 or 3 possible scenarios. That musta been fun to be able to shoot Fs so late in the game...

Great photos! Imagine shooting two sets of F-Units side by side working on a major system in 1980!
Wow! The people out west had all the fun.

Always a good time chasing the BN F's, with an airplane fuselage to boot.

Could never find Black River Junction. Was able to get them in a few other locations though. Great stuff.

Looks like an aircraft fuselage next to them?

Notice the white striping on nose is quite different on each.
Great shots.

Pretty cool two trains both with F units that late in time.

Cheers, Jim

The different striping on the nose was a result of a change in the paint diagrams to
make applying the stripes easier. The 752 on the right has the original scheme while
the 706 on the left has the modified scheme. In four years the F's would be gone.
The last bastions of them were in the Pacific Northwest and out of Northtown although
I can't tell you which one s lasted the longest. I know I got several of them at
Northtown in the late 70's.
