Without a doubt my personal favorite B-B unit (at least since the GP30) is the GP60. The dynamic brake intake is very unique. Here, a GP60 (with an animated and friendly engineer!) leads the Buck Local down the Front Range Sub into Denver.

A awesome picture of the Longmont Crew Kevin!  
Who was the engineer that day??  
I knew the old conductor for the Longmont crew Randy.

Thanks, Kevin. Living in Wichita Falls, Texas we are on the mainline for the coal loads from Wyoming and the Z Trains from the West Coast, so we see quite a bit of action. Your photos are always refreshing and welcome.

Great sets of pics Kevin. I liked the last two showing that all BNSF locos are not in the pumpkin colors...in fact it is a wonderful view of previous road names and liveries.  
Good shot of Pinlifter. Nice to see a Member of the Yahoo Colorado Railfan Group at work.

Haha! Thanks Pinlifter. I added the "animated engineer" comment just for you. :-)
