Sure.. why not? The rail is owned now by BNSF, so it makes good sense to clear those lumbering UP trains off your main as soon as possible so that you can keep your own trains moving.

Nice pix by African Steam as usual!! Those DD35s were awesome!

Cheers,
Harry

I can't find the cab on the middle unit.

Nothing wrong with the picture, but UP still using those tired old DD35s was what's wrong. Too unreliable by that time, they could NOT handle it. Back in the days when it said "Dependable Transportation" below the cab, they could.

I suggest you letter your models accordingly.
