Burlington Northern, in an attempt to improve grade-crossing safety in 1985, replaced the white nose stripes on SD40-2 8002 with a high-visibility orange. It was the only SD40 model so painted. Photographer Eric Burnham caught the one-of-a-kind locomotive leading a freight through Winona Jct, WI on 21 April 1991
