Photo Error In May Issue Of Trains Magazine
Posted by SooBoy61 on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 12:16 PM

While reading the article on BNSF upgrades in Locomotive Briefs on page 21 of the May issue there seems to be a mismatch between the photo and the body of the article.  It states BNSF is updating 45 of the 51 remaining SD75Ms and the photo shows BNSF 283.  Unless I have my facts wrong BNSF 283 is actually a SD75I.  Question is then, does this upgrade include both the SD75M and SD75I models?  Rather curious since Progress Rail Tacoma has the first 4 of the remaining SD75ms on site and am rather curious as to what they are going to do with them.

BNSF doesn't differentiate between the SD75Ms and SD75Is; as far as it's concerned, they're all "SD75M".  Initially, the BNSF 8276-8301 series units were designated "SD75I"; however, BNSF moved to simplify the model designations of units with isolated cabs, and these units were re-designated "SD75M."
