I figure it is also worth posting pictures of Warbonnets, even if they are just sitting around at the time of the shot! A C40-8W and an SD75M are sitting, waiting for their next assignment.

Hard to disagree with anything you said there Steve! While I think Matt Rose has done a lot of good for BNSF, he is also responsible for the "New Image" - designed specifically to get away from the cigar band / ATSF logo, etc. So I don't know that a Heritage-type unit is real likely with him at the helm...

Thanks for the bonnets!  
 
They really need to paint these things, but just another powerbar is a wretched thought. I miss the Warbonnets terribly these days. BNSF needs a real heritage paint program that keeps the employees and public mindful of their history. A few BN units in Cascade green along with CB&Q, GN and NP schemes would look real nice next to a few Warbonnets in *real red* and *real silver*, not sickly pink and gray.  
 
Beats the heck out of a meaningless acronym.
