GP11 8704

Dan Bohannon

 
    Illinois Central, and later Illinois Central Gulf, was having so much success rebuilding geeps that they started buying units that were from other railroads.  UP 186B was built in April 1954 and the fact it didn't have a cab wasn't as bad you would first think.  It was rebuilt into 8704 and was released in June of 1979.  8704 was later repainted into the new IC black and white scheme.  It was retired on September 29th 1998 and on the 29th sold to "TRANS-MARK."  It was moved to the Maumee and Western railroad and renumber MAW 8.

Notes:  Note the lack of a "GP11" tag.  Tags weren't applied until the 8710 unit.

Date in Solid Orange: June 14th 1979 - ??
