If I recall correctly, 4700-4850 were painted by VMV, not EMD, which might explain the poor paint jobs. I also recall production of BNSF's SD70MACs being outsourced to Mexico and whatnot, which also...

12 left on CSX at last count, and at least a few of those are suspected to now be Yn3 (just lacking photo evidence). At this rate, they'll all be gone on CSX by the end of 2011...shoot 'em now!
