#537 Warbonnet Fundraiser

A recent addition to the RRHMA – Silvis fleet is BNSF Railway #537, originally built as Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway #537 in 1990 by General Electric. This model B40-8W was donated by our friends at BNSF. Ordered as part of the AT&SF Super Fleet of new EMD and GE diesels painted in Santa Fe’s famous Warbonnet passenger diesel paint scheme, the AT&SF was the only railroad to order the B40-8W. #537 is the first of the type to be preserved, although the model is still operated by four short lines in addition to BNSF.

RRHMA – Silvis is looking to bring #537 back into its former warbonnet silver and red colors. Estimated at $80,000.00, RRHMA is looking to raise funds to repaint #537.
