Surprise Jackpot by factorone33 Surprise Jackpot by factorone33
On an impromptu trip up the BNSF maintenance yard, which runs under the Branner Trafficway viaduct, I managed to get shots of the largest number of locomotives I've seen at once, much less of the same model.

This group of roughly 25 to 30 B23-7s, a majority of which still retain their ATSF livery, sits on two separate lines inside the yard, dead, waiting for whatever it is they're here for. I'm not gonna guess a new paint job, though most looked very clean.

Another angle can be seen here.

This is one lucky find.

Wow, that's amazing! Imagine hearing them all running at once! :eyepopping: I REALLY hope those aren't heading to scrap; they're all such cool old locos. Also, do I spy some BN Geeps way back there? :? I'd love to see the Beep if you have any photos of her. They say she's way too big for her Blombergs. :giggle:

Well, this is the Topeka maintenance shops (of which I have handfuls of shots, so just browse around). There's always ex-BN Geeps and SD units in this place.

And of course, I do have a shot of the Beep, which you can see here. Unfortunately, you can't see the Blombergs from that angle, but I do have a handful of others that I need to upload (bad) that give a great view of the whole thing doing some locomotive switching during the day. Her EMD 567 was chuggin' right along last time I was out there. I'll make it a point to try and catch it again next time I'm out that way (which should be in a couple of weeks).

Nice catch. Soon to be power for regionals and shortlines perhaps?

Either that or fodder for the scrap yards. Every time I go back, I see plenty of old units, but never the same ones (except for the Beep).

It was something I wasn't expecting to see when I went. I'm trying to make it a point to go back more often because I see all kinds of great stuff every time.
