Eclectic Motive Power on BNSF Manifest in Stanwood, WA
Posted by Yard Limit on Thursday, March 16, 2017 10:21 AM

This is probably the most interesting collection of motive power I've ever seen on a train.

I apologize but it seems that the link to the video on youtube isn't getting put in the body of my post.  Please find us on youtube: Yard Limit

Without pictures of what you saw - you didn't see anything we can comment on.

Never too old to have a happy childhood!

Interesting lash-up and quasi-museum of BN/SF locomotive models (note - no DPU).

Thanks for sharing !  Bow  And to Paul of Covington for finding and posting the link.  Bow

   I'm assuming that maybe only the first two units were on line.   The rest seemed rather old (I don't know how old the "B" units were.)   Could they have been "cleaning out the garage", either selling or scrapping them?
