Unlike UP, BNSF has no Heritage Units either.

Have yet to see any SD70ACE's or ES44AC's/DC's in Red and Silver.

There is already a nice collection of locomotives in ATSF Heritage colors working on Pacific Harbor Line.  Cimarron Valley has some GE's freshly painted in ATSF colors.  The Bloomer Line has a GP7 (possibly others) in CB&Q Chinese Red.

In addition to the Heritage Fleet and 911, NS also has a nice collection of special paint jobs and lettering on other locomotives such as the first AC rebuilds of both GE and EMD locomotives and the 4700 series of ECO rebuilds.

I am basically pretty ambivalent about heritage units. I enjoy seeing some though. I like one I saw in a photo recently, a PRR pinstriped unit.

What I could do without are the thematic special units.

I like anything that breaks up the monotony and uniformity of modern railroading.
