MILW F9 93C
Title:  MILW F9 93C
Description:  Milwaukee Road F9 93C at Elgin, Illinois on March 7, 1964, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 93C was built in January 1954 (c/n 18754) as number 83C (second), renumbered to 126A (first), then 93C (second). Originally built as a freight locomotive, it was regeared in the late 1950's - early 1960's for passenger service and a Cummins diesel/generator set was installed for HEP for the Budd gallery cars in commuter service. Number 93C was sold to Chrome Crankshaft in October 1980 and scrapped..

MILW F9 94A
Title:  MILW F9 94A
Description:  MILW F9 93C and 94A at Elgin, Illinois on March 7, 1964, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. These locomotives are facing east, so I don't think they are in push-pull service yet, although a Budd cab car can be seen in the background on the left..

MILW F9's 93C and 94A
Title:  MILW F9's 93C and 94A
Description:  Milwaukee Rad F9's 93C and 94A at Elgin, Illinois on May 1, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Both locomotives are F9's, built for freight service on EMD Order 3172, the 93C was built in January 1954 as 83C (c/n 18754), later renumbered 93C, and later still renumbered to 126A, and it appears to have been retired in February 1975. Number 94A was also built in January 1954 (c/n 18755) as 84C, later renumbered 94A, later still renumbered 127A, and appears to have been retired in January 1978. In the early 1960's both units were equipped with Cummins HEP generators for suburban service. Interesting observation; I believe it is illegal to paint couplers nowdays, because it hides the cracks that might indicate failure. But it appears that the Milwaukee cared about the appearance of its locomotives, if only for a brief period of time.
