BNSF 648 approaches Cosnino Road, Cosnino, AZ on February 25, 2006.

Three C44's, three paint schemes. BNSF "Warbonnet" C44-9W 648 follows "Heritage 1" C44-9W 1086 and "Heritage II (Pumpkin) C44-9W 5122 around the banked curve, heading west toward Cosnino road (Cosnino, AZ) on February 25, 2006. The 648's red is fading but the unit's silver is holding up well. In the distance, blurred by the locomotives' exhaust, is an ATSF signal bridge which has since been replaced.
Canon EOS 5DMKII - 1/800 sec - f/11 - ISO 400 - EF100-400mmL IS f/4.5-5.6 lens @115mm.
