They stopped doing the beaver years ago. None of the GEVO's have it. 

Hunter started to change everything to just CP.

10000 feet and no dynamics? Today is going to be a good day ...

Shadow the Cats owner
If they merge with the NS they can keep the BNSF name just add the Horsehead logo to the paintscheme.  Then make their slogan the BNSF the ultimate throughbred of transportation here in the USA.

This reminds me of the old joke about what would happen when the advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach merged with Batton, Barton, Durstine and Osborn.

The merged entity would be called NSBNSF, its mascot 'head' would be changed to Porky Pig, and the slogan on the side would read "NSBNSF - tha-tha-that's all folks!"
