Early BNSF in Louisiana
Author: SPJoe

BNSF (H1) GP50 3184, BN B30-7AB 4042, BN B30-7AB 4076 at the BNSF Lafayette La Yard 90's. BN had over 100 of these B-units but, they were interesting power for South Louisiana at the time.

BN at the time was into B units, whether purchased new like these or as wreck rebuilds. Didn't last.

Didn't last?  I think they pretty much ran the wheels off of them!   In the mid 80's, it seemed like every train had two 40-2's and a B unit for power.  I suspect they were returned to the lessor when the 15 year lease expired.
