BNSF 559 moves out toward Winslow, just east of Winona, AZ on March 3, 2004.

With the San Fransisco mountains as a backdrop, BNSF B40-W 559 moves out toward Winslow, just east of Winona, AZ on March 3, 2004. The 559 has been repainted into the BNSF Heritage II paint scheme from its ATSF warbonnet colors. The 559 is the last of the initial order of B40-8W's having been delivered in late 1990. The second group had the notched "gullwing" cab, the same as the six axle units which needed the cab clearance for the York Coal mine in New Mexico.
