Today, for GMD fans Willowbrook is a must visit, more so in the eighties...


   GMD 1974 built GP40-2(W) #706 is the future CN #9673 ( in 1991) ;  


    GO #720 was EMD 1967  built GP40-M-2  for Rock Island ( CRIP )  acquired 1982 and was a 1993 trade in to EMD ( for the F59PH #562 to 568 series ) and resold to LLPX as their future #3207 


    GO #723, the 'double header' coupled to #720, was EMD 1967  built GP40-M-2  for Rock Island ( CRIP )  acquired 1982 and was a 1993 trade in to EMD ( for the F59PH #562 to 568 series ) and resold to LLPX as their future #3205


    Maybe GO not so boring ?


   At GO Willowbrook, with permission waiver papers stuffed in pockets, February 12, 1983 Kodachrome by S.Danko


    noteworthy:  the differing classification ( 'marker' ) lights, all sans ditch lights, love that real brass bell on the #720 and the  'in your face'  air horns on #706.
