GP11 8706

Unknown Photographer (Jim Jones Collection)

 
    This unit started as New Haven GP9 1212, built in August of 1956.  When the New Haven was swallowed up by Penn Central, it became PC 7542.  It then went on to become MBTA 7542.  ICG acquired it and rebuilt it to GP11 8706, being released from the Paducah Shops in July of 1979.  It was later painted into the new IC's black and white scheme.  It was retired on November 12th, 1999.  It was sold to Brandywine Valley Railroad later that month becoming their 8706.

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

Date in Solid Orange: July 20th 1979 - ??
