History in the Making
Title:  History in the Making
Description:  Two closely related SD40-2's are linked up on this bitterly cold Minnesota day, and with it being 2009 I couldn't really believe that Im watching these units last few weeks, months if their lucky, before BNSF fills the "quota" for SD40-2 retirements. The 7000,7100,7800,7900,8000's are among the groups being wiped out.
