BNSF #8284 HO SD75I Locomotive Heritage Paint by Athearn Genesis #69219

BNSF #8284 HO SD75I Locomotive Heritage Paint by Athearn Genesis #69219


BNSF SD75I Locomotive #8284 Ready-to-Run on your HO Scale layout.

Purchased in 1997, BNSF's only order of SD75Is was numbered 8276-8301, and they bore a close resemblance to the SD75Ms, which came before. Perhaps the biggest difference was the use of the isolated cab, seen as rubber gasket running down the side of the nose. This was thought to increase crew comfort by isolating them from the noise and vibration of the engine compartment. All of the locomotives were delivered in the Santa Fe Warbonnet scheme, but with large “BNSF” letters on the side-creating a mix of old and new that was particularly suited to these locomotives. Their primary assignment was coal traffic, although it was not uncommon for them to stray westward on other types of BNSF trains.
