Hi Roland1,

I have seen these units but the last time I saw one it was still wearing the blue and yellow warbonnet scheme with BNSF lettering. The last time I saw it was about a month or two ago. Next time I'll pass by there, I'll take my camera and see if I can take a shot of one of these locomotives.

Hello Javier,
the LAJ got two more ! 1200 & 1201 are still wearing the blue/yellow scheme with the BNSF lettering .The new ones ,1202 & 1203 , which are the former UP MK1200G's have the Heritage1 color scheme. May be one of them is a loan to the PHL.

regards
Roland

Do a search on Bing &/or Google using this "MK1200G (1202.1203)". That should get you plenty of pix. And they were in the heritage colors vs the Santa Fe blue/yellow like 1200 & 1201. The Warbonnet issue Third Quarter 2003 has an article on how to scratch build them. They & the CF7s are all gone now. They are using conductor operated RCLs & there's only one engineer position now.
