Has either UP or BNSF started to lease the ex-CSX Sd70Aces. I just saw one today at Barstow. And from what I can gather the unit has headed WEST from Wisconsin. The only railroad that I know has leased the is Norfolk Southern.

No, Neither BNSF or UP have leased the former CSX SD70ACe’s from Progress Rail. 10 are leased to NS currently and 4 to an isolated iron ore line that just reopened up in Quebec. The 5 remaining units will go to NS on lease if/when necessary repairs are complete. The one you saw in Barstow is just run through/pool power from NS,nothing more.

I saw a photo of two on the CN, so maybe they picked up a couple (CN is also leasing other units through Progress Rail). Of course that could just be run through power.
