    After having been separated for a few months, the "Frisco Sisters" as they are known in Duluth are again back together as seen in this photo taken yesterday by Dave Schauer. How many ex-Frisco units remain on the BNSF roster?

    Good find, Gordon. Duluth, GA I presume?

    I'd have to guess that any ex-Frisco units still around these days are few and far between. 3702 looks pretty crisp and good to go for a few more years. 3701 looks pretty weary; what a good paint job will do for an old locomotive.

    Best Regards,

    That is kinda of a good question for the group. I don't know of any new switchers, they just keep rebuilding them. Lots of places where the big road dogs can't go, so I would think, they will just fix them up. Does anyone know, when the last time they built a switcher? I know I don't.

    Chris, based on the piled snow and the Coast Guard WLB-214 USCG Hollyhock Seagoing Buoy Tender (currently assigned to Great Lakes duty out of Port Huron, Michigan), I would say Duluth, Minnesota.
