I'm not sure exactly when the lease will expire on the Oakways SD60s that are on BNSF's roster, but I would expect them to disappear in the next few years. The "Oakways" came onto BN's property in 1987, numbered as EMD 9000 to EMD 9099. Today, all things considered, their paint still looks pretty darn good! Take, for example, EMDX 9050 here on the BWWCHE-28.
