First off let me apologize for being tardy with new posts as of late. I will be returning to my regular schedule of two blog posts a week!
In my previous post I began to discuss my first encounter of three with the BNSF "executive" paint scheme locomotives on Pam Am lines. Looking back, that was a great encounter and the next day I was again lucky in catching these units in Waterville, while visiting family.
October 28th was a gloomy Sunday with an increasingly dark sky. I was actually quite worried that it was going to rain before I could get any decent photos. On the drive up it began to rain and steadily increased until Augusta. Luckily, in Waterville it was a light sprinkle. I stopped by Maine Central #470 to see if could see the units, but to no avail.
I drove further down the road running parallel to the Waterville yard. As I was driving slowly along I caught a glimpse of the green and cream colored paint scheme. I pulled over and snapped two photos between two box cars. I have to apologize in advance for not catching better photos during the day time.

The Sappi local approached at a brisk pace with newly painted GMTX 3005 leading with MEC 348 behind. It was a short train and I followed it back to the Waterville yard, but was unable to get any additional photos due to the oil cans.
