Walther's Mainline SD60M 3-Window Cab Burlington Northern #9203 & #9238 Arrive!

One of the many things I like about Model Railroading is learning about the history of Freight Cars or Locomotive I own or like. Some are very simple like this Burlington Northern SD60M. However, some are more obscure, but let visit those later. 

I am still learning this Hobby and over the many years I have enjoyed, I still have a lot to learn. Thanks to the internet it has made research is a lot easier than it use to be. 

The two Engines we are going to talk about today in brief are the SD60M 3-Window Cab Burlington Northern #9203 & #9238. As I expand my knowledge I will try to go into more detail on specific items but for now we will keep things rather simple yet still interesting.

Was built in 12/1989 as BN 9203 Model EMD SD60M

The Engine history went as follows:

I am to provide a link to the website if you want to see pictures of the engine as it is in thermal world. I did not want to use any of the pictures as I did not get permission. That is something I will like to add in the future.
