100508 8250
Nelson Point, BHP Billiton 'Pumpkin' unit 4328 was built by Electro-Motive as an EMD model SD70ACe for the BNSF railroad in the USA with serial 20066862-057 but was sold to BHP while under construction as one of ten similar units to be diverted to BHP in an all over BNSF base orange earning them the nickname of 'pumpkins' after the BNSF livery. They were standard US domestic units and required substantial modifications to be afforded lead unit status for BHP. This elevated view shows the tropical roof, non-slip paint on the hood, marker lights and modified sand fillers, rear end plough, fire suppression tanks and dual handrail. 8th May 2010.
