It is F40PHM-3 204 on BNSF with the Grubhub livery.

First Winnebago to have wrap. Looks pretty sharp.

Not sure if anybody posted about this and it might be old news, so apologies if this is outdated and/or a double post. 210 after suffering a fire at CUS back in June 2019 was rebuilt and has been running. Some of the last Winnebagos that were rebuilt had roofs that were painted black vs gray. 210 was one-of them.

I've started seeing #10, a GP23ECO rebuild, on the Rock Island District, presumably for switching/rescue/MoW duties. So far, I've only caught it running light.

203 was at 14th Street yesterday on a SWS set. Don’t know when it moved over there. Furthering the theory that all of the Winnebagos could ultimately be moved to the BNSF/SWS pool.

191 had a failure recently in which 208 coupled to 8 cars had to pull its consist along with 191 which was coupled to 8 cars.

190 has not been seen in quite a while. This was one of the last Winnebagos to be rebuilt.

All F40PHM-3’s except 202 and 209 went to the BN after rebuild. Some MP36’s from the Milwaukee moved to the Rock as replacements.

190, 198, and 203 are in the SWS pool. PTC isn’t set up to play nice between BN and Metra, which keeps certain equipment assigned only to SWS.
