Just read a report that BNSF's "Vomit Bonnet" is headed south on lease to Ferromex along with a bunch of other Grinstein Green units.

It's amazing that these first order SD70MAC's and AC4400's are about at the end of their lives.

I'm just glad BNSF didn't send them their SD60Ms...there's still hope they'll come back!

There's a bunch of the SD-60's at Northtown still laid up, and it's not unusual to be short on power here, so................. fire them up!!!

From what I understand, the lease FXE had on the BNSF units is up and they are supposed to be making their way back to the US by the end of this month

If FXE is needing units from BNSF, then why are some of their own units on BNSF right now? One was here in town yesterday on a shuttle grain.

I dont know why they would send sd70mac's to mexico when they have plenty of junker SD40's and SD60's and all those parked CW40-8's

The Vomit Commit went south in May so this is old news... it was in tough shape in need of repair, I don't want it back. It even had a turbo fire destroying some of the paint I think on the Conductor's side.
