EMD vs. GE by hunter1828 EMD vs. GE by hunter1828
An EMD SD70MAC and a GE ES44AC sit nose to nose at the Great Falls, MT engine facilities on March 16, 2008. I saw them down there this morning (with an SD75I Warbonnet) and got a nice sunny shot but then I had to get to work. They were still there this afternoon and one of the BNSF employees invited me onto the property to get some close up shots. Too bad it wasn't still sunny.

You're lucky. I live in a very boring town in NJ where there is 1 train a day that comes in the afternoon and leaves at night. Only once did i see a locomotive with type C trucks. Everything here is GPs..and mainly ones with the huge hood..lol

When the economy dropped off a couple years ago, the rail traffic here dwindled to almost nothing but the locals and two daily manifests. Then late last year a new coal mine opened up for rail traffic and BNSF decided to route most of the trains through here, so now traffic is back up.

You were lucky enough to capture both engines with their most becoming paint jobs. The green and cream was the best for the MAC 70's, and I still prefer the ES44's with the orange and Pullman Green. The Orange and Black they use now is not nearly as unique...but it's cheaper to maintain...

Yeah. BNSF should keep those paint jobs spit shined. It's depressing seeing such a beautiful paint job deteriorate.

I like the executive paint on the Big Macs too. I always thought it was nice. I would have been interested to see if that paint was applied to other new units BN would have purchased, had the BNSF merger not happened.
