CB&Q GP20 918
Title:  CB&Q GP20 918
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad GP20 918 at Clyde, Illinois on April 20, 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built March 1961 (c/n 26589), it became BN 2054 and was retired August 1999. Also of interest is the second unit, EMD 462. It was a former C&NW F7, built as CStPM&O 6501A (c/n 8580) built December 1949, retired January 7, 1959, traded to EMD. This unit was rebuilt in May 1960 (new c/n 26158) and used as a test bed for the 645 series prime mover and other 40-series components. It tested extensively on the CB&Q, eventually being repainted in metallic blue and white. It was finally cut up at Pielet Bros. in 1998 after being held for some time. Offers were made to buy it, but no deal was ever made.

EMD F9 462
Title:  EMD F9 462
Description:  Electro-Motive Division ( EMD ) F9 462 at the CB&Q facility at Clyde, Illinois on April 20, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 462 was built in December 1949 as C&NW F7 6501A (c/n 8580) on EMD Order E1188, was retired by the C&NW on January 7, 1959 and traded back to EMD. It was rebuilt during May 1960 into a F9A (new c/n, 26158, note there appears to be two builders plates) on EMD Order E1188-A33R and used as a test unit for newly developed components. It is seen here between two CB&Q GP20's testing something.

A note from Ken Lanovich: EMD 462 was scrapped at Midwest Metalics (Pielet Bros) in 1998. They held it for some time, offers were made to buy it, but no group ever came up with the cash. The last offer was to buy the cab for a restaurant in downtown Chicago but that fell through. I remember pieces of it went to Larry's T.E. when the property was being cleaned up. Anybody need an F unit pilot? The 462's pilot and a brand new one from EMD went to LTEX when Midwest shut down.

Title:  EMD classics
Description:  EMD 462 had been a test bed for various innards for quite a few years. At this time, I think it had a 710 engine in it. The A-B set is at Walsenburg Colo with some of the other EMD test equipment.
