Is there any fairly new unit that this paint scheme didn't look good on?  Thanks for sharing.

It seemed best to me on the smooth lines of the SD-70/75 (second in the consist). The bulging radiators on the GE units or the dynamic brake blister on the earlier EMD units gets in the way.

Good one, but I never did like the BNSF lettering on the Warbonnet units, just didn't look right...

I agree with JG about the BNSF, but at least they were warbonnets and I don't know why they didn't keep that schemme.  I always blamed Krebs.
