Bluebird West by DragonWolfACe Bluebird West by DragonWolfACe
Snow kicks up as a CEFX SD40-2 in a SD45 carbody hauls Q383 westward with a Burlington Northern SD9 trailing. Note, the SD9 was RUNNING! Pure 567 goodness. Bluebirds are what the CEFX units where nicknamed for their...blue paint.

The next westbound was a S383, second section of Cumberland to Chicago freight Q383. It was led by a Santa Fe Dash8 warbonnet and BN SD40-2. I would shoot it meeting Q368 with a few CSX units, a BN SD40-2, and a ATSF B40-8, one of two still in ATSF paint. Ironically enough, I would end up shooting ANOTHER BN SD9 on Norfolk Southern at dusk. I had yet to see any SD9s at that point and wouldnt see another until last year.

It was a good day.

Blue Birds was also a common nickname for EL/NJDOT U34CH's when they wore their as-delivered NJDOT Blue paint.

How about a size comparison between a SD45 and a SD80Mac!

I was already about to ask "Huh, you still have snow at the end of April?", but then saw the actual photo date. :XD:
