I know BNSF has a bunch of GP60Bs (which I have seen quite frequently in the past few months... :shock: ) and some SD40-2Bs. Does any other major railroad still use B units? (not including yard slugs)

CP also has some SD40-2B's which rentain their cab (the windows are plated over) and P&W has some exBN B30-7A(B)'s which are used regularly. But thats all I think of off the top of my head.

We just got a new SD40-2B in our yard last week. It also has a remote in it. I haven't had a chance to drive it around yet.

Who needs little RC cars when you can remotely control a real locomotive! :lol:
