GP9 in 2009
Title:  GP9 in 2009
Description:  Wow, my second GP9 of 2009, and 2009 is only 12 days old! One can only imagine what this unit has seen. I love that NP style bell on the nose. I had just enough time to shoot of this shot because a cut of cars headed for the hump would soon block this view.

A BNSF torpedo tube GP9 at Northtown yard Mpls MN in March 2012.
Title:  A BNSF torpedo tube GP9 at Northtown yard Mpls MN in March 2012.
Description:  This is the Winnepeg unit at retirement age of 60. This is a former NP GP9, note the NP bell. I think its still in storage. Railroads ordered GP9s with air tanks on the roof for passenger GP9s to store boiler water for heating passenger cars in part of the fuel tank just for boiler water. Note the BNSF still has 4 SD9s operating in 2012, units #1550-1553. Search the RR archive by BNSF 1553.
