Paint looks great. The two axel/4 wheel truck on an SD60M looks strange to me

Disregard...I was thinking "SD60M" not "GP60M".

I regret the error.

Wow, a locomotive that paint scheme actually looks good on. I think its that the logo takes up more space on the smaller unit and there's less dead orange space around it (and I hate orange).

Wow! Thanks for sharing Ween! Although on the one hand I really like it, on the other hand, thats one less Superfleet engine...

I just hope they don't start doing this to the whiteface SD60Ms...but the faded H2 SD70MACs would be nice...

That's sad, wrong and beautiful all at the same time!
Very few Swooshes come through Indiana, think I've only bagged 3 so far.

Its sad to see old paint schemes die, especally when its converted to that Swoosh thing.

I think everyone would be a lot happier if BNSF just repainted everything in Cascade Green or Executive.

My vote would be for CG. I never warmed up to the executive scheme.
