BNSF'S East Thomas Yard  Contributor's Pick!       
BNSF Yard Job Y- BIR102 doing some switching at East Thomas Yard. Finally after years of waiting for a shot of these unusual SD38P's & TEBC6's in actual service I finally nailed them on a yard job doing some switching. These units usually sit around & aren't used very much & I have plenty of roster shots of them, but was very happy to finally catch them performing service after years of waiting

William H. Davis Jr. General Thanks Bradley, These units have been in Birmingham for years now & only now have they just begun to use them. Never could figure out why they sat for so long, but I'm just glad to have gotten them in service as oppose to just sitting around 12/8/2010 9:19:25 AM
