Nice shot! I liked the comment you made somewhere else about how the B23s sound like a combination of a C30 and a RS-18. :-)

Too bad MMA doesn't have any U18Bs. They're fun to watch, and they sound unlike any other GE locomotive. They actually sound quite similar to the rare Alco C415.

I just realized those 4-axle GE's in BNSF org/grn aren't too far different looking than the U18B's MEC had in org/grn.

I spoke to the engineer who had good words about these locos :P

Sweetness. Seems to be much easier to patch a BNSF painted unit and make it look good than a ATSF painted unit.
