    I personally do not like the change. I liked the old logo better.

    And.... Don't mess around with CSX. :p

    I think they have discovered that Santa Fe won't die! I still refer to the BNSF as Santa Fe, even at a rail seminar where the instructor was the car repair supervisor for the BNSF. He yelled "Burlington" at me! It would appear that they are trying to remove every last vestige of the Santa Fe from their corporate name in hopes the Santa Fe fans will forget. By the way, most railfans I know refer to it as the "BinSif."

    I always called it BinSif. Athearn must not have had much of a problem getting usage rights of the logo because if you go to the new Athearn website, they have the new logo up and selling on AC4400's RTR and Genesis trinity hoppers. I hate the new look. :curse: I no longer have anything BNSF except a brand new Atlas Dash 8-40B but I couldn't resist to pass up a $140.00 locomotive for $50.00. :eek: :D :thumb: I do like the new nickname though. Wedgie. Wedgie. It has a nice ring to it. :D I LIKE IT! :D

    By the way. Curiosity never killed the cat. Just got it's nose wet, but what does CSX stand for?

    Ya know, I had a bit of a thing for the CSX colors but after I saw a site called my look upon the company changed. It's horrible. Hell you should even see what they had to do to the tunnel up in KY that collapsed on a train that is no longer there. Trains Mag even had a nice section on the new open top tunnel.

    Coming from anothrer BNSF employee, they tell us this new logo is supposed to represent the 'new streamlined' BNSF Railway. Is that what they are talking about when they keep selling all the local jobs?

    A little bitter....

    If the Union Pacfic does change their name to UP, their new slogan should be, "What goes UP Must Come Down." :D :D :D :D

    :) Not to mention they need to paint there engines rather than a lil logo. the equipment comming here to Seattle it 3 shades of yellow.

    I swear they dont wash the equipment before they repaint. Leter when they do wash it the new paint comes off with the dirt. OR did they get a great deal on water base paint.
    :) :) :) :) :rolleyes: ;) :D
