Perhaps the moderators should move the topic out of the "Railroad Photography Forum" and over here where it belongs.

You're calling the Heritage schemes "crap"? Sure they aren't the BEST colors out there, but at least it had some "Heritage" in it (hence the name). Now they're gonna take away all BNSF's heritage, including what it actually stands for. They're just as bad as CSX now...only BNSF has an uglier logo.

That they are. It looks like the makeup room of a clown college blew up on it or something. The new scheme doesn't look as bad as that.

I doubt that many will refuse to shoot them even with the new ridiculous looking lettering job. As someone here in another thread on this wrote, they don't sem to be in a big hurry to repaint what they already have out there. Personally, the heritage paint scheme is fine with me. Not to question the judgement of a Southern railfan, but NS's scheme appears to be the most thought out paint job since Penn Central. Don't get me wrong, Southern had an outstanding scheme. Both the green and the last one they used were nice. In my opinion, the green and white looked fine on the F and E units, but just doesn't sit well on a GP59. Not sure why they couldn't have gone with an 'as delivered' scheme on a GP50 or an SD40-2 rather than this. Kind of like is CSX decided to do a tribute to it's predecessors by painting an SD70AC in Chessie or an AC44CW in Seaboard System. The CSX scheme on an F7 was enough. It just didn't look right, if that makes any sense. Special thanks should go out to RJ Corman for destroying those beautiful Southern FP7s by repainting them in what surely has to be THE tackiest paint job ever.

Union Pacific, though all devouring, gets the prize for consistency. At least they still have those nice looking E-units (I think) and the DD40 looking as they're intended.

CSX sounds about as much of a railroad as CET Financial Corporation Inc. Nice colors, bad choice of a name. Norfolk Southern. Nice sounding 'railroady' name, poor looking paint. Norfolk and Western experimented some before the end with the maroon units with yellow lettering. From what I understand, though, the cost of that paint put the nail in that coffin. Had it not been, it might've been interesting to see what scheme NS might have went with. Even if they'd gone with a yellow or gold lettering on the black it would've been an improvement (IMHO).

Bottom line, these are businesses first. We don't have to enjoy what they do with their property. But as long as we're out there shooting them, we will take what they deliver. And yeah, I still shoot NS, CSX, UP, BNSF and whatever lease unit happens to roll by. I might have to draw the line with the RJ Corman F's, though.

Just my opinion, though.

well, the good news for you photographers, is to be chasing one of these new GEVO's and get a picture of it! It is going to be more exciting to get a picture of these new schemes than the heritages, because theres only like what? 1, 2, 3? of these new schems out.

What an incentive for the BNSF to paint all their units in an unattractive paint scheme: no foamers hanging out trackside to take a photo.

This scheme shall pass too. Think of the white faced units; the tiger stripes; the vomit bonnet; the original Hertiage with red stripes and writing; the green with a white oval under the cab windows sporting the unit number; and so on.

There were two previous paint schemes with Heritage I and Hertiage II. The Heritage II is the one that's probably most common.

Examples of Heritage I (or a shameless self-promotion )

The newer paint scheme is kind of growing on me now after seeing the top photo of yesterday. IMO, the yellow lettering looks much nicer than the black.

I definitely think the Yellow H3 looks better, however, that black nose door handle would look better if it was painted yellow.

The more pictures i see of the H3 paint scheme the more and more i dont mind seeing it. I really like the side of the loco, but the nose should be changed. Other than that i think i can live with it.

Thanks for the Info mate!
And yeah, The 2nd BNSF logo Rocks, But the style of the 3rd one is nice, too.. but it doesn't fit the trains, it should be Yellow Colored.. then I cannot wait to see a nice pic of a Dash-9 with the yellow 3rd logo .

Cheers,
David.

Yep the BNSF new logo is kind of bad. It reminds me of the shoes I wear Nike.

My favorite paint scheme of all is my favorite train company ret. D&RGW

Well according to TRAINS magazine BNSF has 6 ES44DCs with either black or yellow style running around the system.I have seen BNSF 7687 and 7701 in the black and BNSF 7695 in yellow, but for the other three I dont know.Also in the article it says BNSF chose one of the two paint schemes in April.I hope they chose the Black style.You can see the black better than the yellow.
