BNSF continues to re-paint locomotive fleet

BNSF Railway Co. recently took delivery of 34 ES44DC locomotives from GE Transportation-Rail sporting the railroad’s new logo, and orange, black and yellow paint scheme. Since changing its name and logo in January, BNSF has gradually repainted locomotives and taken delivery of new units featuring the revised paint scheme.

During the next few months, about 40 locomotives will be repainted as part of scheduled overhaul or repair work; by year end, GE will deliver 67 additional ES44DCs and 90 ES44AC units.
