If won, the GP35s will be numbered 710 - 725, the SD39s will be numbered 390 and 391, and the SD40 will be numbered 400.


Congratulations HPR, you have won all of the GP35's you bid on as well as the SD40. The SD39's were bid on by both you and PC so as soon as an outside arbitrator is selected, you can PM that person your bid and we will then determine who the winner was for those two units. Thank you for doing business with BNSF auctions.

Congratulations AW, you have won 20 of the GP30's that you bid on. There were five that the SAMM bid on and we are waiting for their bid to be delivered before declaring the winner of those five. Please make arrangements with BNSF to pick up your locomotives and have them delivered to the interchange point of your choice. Thank you for using BNSF auctions.

I need a volunteer to be an outside arbitrator between me and legostudios regarding the pair of SD39's that we both bid on. If you volunteer, lego and I will PM you our bids for the locomotives and whoever submitted the highest offer is declared by you as the winner of them. That's only way to ensure that everything is fair.

Penn Central has bid on the following:
LAJ CF7 2568
LAJ CF7 2563
LAJ CF7 2612

BNSF GP15-1 1376
BNSF GP15-1 1481

BNSF SD9 1717
BNSF SD9 1719
BNSF SD9 1724
BNSF SD9 1728
BNSF SD9 1919
BNSF SD9 1921

The SD9's and GP15-1's are in Topeka, KS and the CF7's are in Barstow, CA. To handle this here on our forum, you do not have to reveal your bid unless someone else tries to acquire what you're bidding on. If possible, list the unit numbers like I did of the engines you are bidding on as well. The auction ends at 5pm EDT time tomorrow, so if your bid is the highest or you bid on something and no one else outbids you at that time, you "win" those locomotives from the auction. Good luck gentlemen and let the bidding begin :mrgreen:


Congratulations Penn Central, you have won all but two of the locomotives you bid on. You have won the 3 CF7's, 2 GP15-1's, and 3 SD9's. The two SD39's you bid on were also bid on by HPR and as soon as an outside arbitrator is selected, we will compare your bids and let you know if you won them or not. Please make arrangements with BNSF to pick up your locomotives and have them delivered to the interchange point of your choice. Thank you for doing business with BNSF auctions.

Okay, legostudio, PM your bid on the two SD39's to MQT and he will compare yours to the one I send him and declare which one of us is the winner.

For twice the price that legostudios34 bid, conrailman75 wins the SD39s for $300,000 apice. Lego bid $142,000

For the 5 remaining GP30's, the bids have been received and TCtrain is the winner, with a bid of $200,000 per loco versus astrovan's bid of $142,000 for each unit. So the AW has won all 25 of the GP30's in the auction :)
