Calling all Ballcap Fans

The Wadena local on July 6 had some interesting power. While rebuilt GP30's are not uncommon on this train, this was the first time I have seen a pair of them-and as sole power on the train to boot.

With no time to wait for him to start his homeward journey, you'll have to live with this single poor photo as the only evidence that the 2010 BNSF still runs trains behind matched sets of GP30 carbodies.

I'm feeling the urge to visit ebay for a mate to the BN GP30 I have. It's one of the smoothest running engines I've ever seen, and one more copy, a little paint, and some decals, could duplicate this consist.
