Westbound Burlington Northern Railroad freight train in Hindsdale Illinois. October 1989.
A pleasant Sunday afternoon in October of the year 1989, was spent photographing the Burlington Northern Railroad, in West Suburban Hindsdale Illinois. Two elderly early 1960s vintage EMD GP-30 diesel locomotives, are seen wearing an "Experimental New Image" color scheme. This then new variation, was nicknamed the "Whiteface" color scheme. This was one of the "Last" burlington Northern Railroad's color schemes in use. In the year 1995. The Santa Fe and the Burlington Northern railroad companies "Merged" and became BNSF.
