"Blue Bonnets" sunning in the yard         
I woke up early to shoot some Stockton Sub action on this morning, but unfortunately I was greeted by empty tracks. I did luck out to find this great pair of elderly GEEPS out in the open in Riverbank Yard (and being photographed by some other fans). GP39-2 #2845 was delivered to the Santa Fe as their #3649 in March of 1975. It became SPSF #3148 in July of 1985, only to be renumbered back to ATSF #3649 before December of 1987. It was rebuilt into a GP39-2u and renumbered #3445 at that time. It became BNSF #2845 in September of 1999. GP30u #2466 began life as ATSF #2768 in April of 1963. It also wore #1268 and #3268 before becoming SPSF #2768 in 1982. It was rebuilt in December of 1980, and it became BNSF #2466 in May of 1999.
