BNSF GP38-2 2050 rumbles past the Joliet, IL depot on June 4, 2013. This is one of several ex GATX locomotives added to the BNSF roster. This variation of the "swoosh" paint scheme has been christened tbe "smurf" paint scheme. This locomotive started out in April 1967 as Clinchfield GP38 2007. Here the 2050 is the lead unit of a "push pull" move with another GP38-2 following the two boxcar consist. Later they would return with a tank car added between the buffer box cars.
