GP38D 9523

Unknown Photographer (Jim Jones Collection)

 
    Built in August of 1969, this unit started as GM&O 704.  When the IC and GM&O merged, it stayed GM&O 704 until being repainted in this scheme, becoming ICG 9523.  It was sold to Neosha Rail service on April 8th, 1994.  Later that year sold to National Railway Equipment at Silvis, Illinois.  It was sold in February 1995 to Railtex for the New England Central Railroad, first as 9523, then becoming NECR 3846.  It was damaged beyond repair in a derailment near Wilmington, Vermont on April 10th, 2001 and ended up in the Connecticut River.  It was moved to St. Albans Vermont later that month and is being used for spare parts.

Notes:  This unit has non-standard initials, leading to the idea that this unit was repainted at Woodcrest, instead of the Paducah Shops.  One of only two GM&O units to receive this scheme.

Date in Solid Orange: ?? - ??
