Nice series... yeah, the 7700s are probably the worst looking locomotives on the BNSF. I've been told that being in the captive pool they are often subjected to very harsh chemical soaps to clean off the graffiti and this has caused the fading, but others have told me other stories on why they look that way (harsh water in Bartsow, cheap paint, etc.).
