I love lease engines. I don't know what it is, but they are some of my favorites. Here are some shots I've gotten recently at the Pigs Eye Shops in Saint Paul. The CITX "Grey Ghost" 3090 is one of my favorites, but I have more than a few of the SD45-2s (SD40M-2) lately. There was even this snoot nose unit CEFX 3164.
In this shot you can see 4 SD45-2 body units as well as CITX 3064, one of the green units, which was hanging around the shops for about a week this spring.
 On the Minneapolis side, the BNSF Northtown has been overflowing with Oakway Leasers. I've gotten pictures of quite a few. I like the primered section in middle of EMDX SD60 9002.


  1. I wonder if any of these Oakways are the ones that are going to CN. JSL

  2. I was just wondering the same thing, JSL.

    I love these shots and the 3rd one especially... so colourful!

  3. I'll post up some more shots of the Northtown lines, just in case any of them do end up going the way of the CN.
