BNSF 4517 near Marmon, NM on February 9, 2012.

BNSF C44-9W 4517 heads east between Marmon and Suwanee, NM (MP51) on February 9, 2012, shortly after crossing Interstate 40 with fresh snow on the background mountain tops. The second and fourth units are ES44C4's - 6695 and 6758. These A-1-A AC units are now seen quite often as BNSF now has over 200 of them. The locomotive and Schneider container orange colors are a very good match for the local earth color.
