BNSF Heritage Paint Schemes

Ever since the giant BNSF Railway was formed the road has experimented with several different paint schemes to represent its corporate image. Along the way there’s been several “oddball” paint schemes to liven up the mundane orange and black such as the “Golden Swoosh #7695,” the “Vomit Bonnet #9647,” the “Heritage 1 with gold lettering #1050,” the “Great Pumpkin #1474” and the “Microsoft Simulator #4723.”

Like the CSX with its YN-1 (Yellow Nose) and beyond, BNSF has its own generation of paint schemes that have become common representations of the railroad over the last 20 years. The image below shows the Heritage 1-3 paint schemes that adorned the vast majority of the BNSF locomotive fleet…. With a little luck and some searching, you can still find some of the earliest ones around.
