According to the 1977-80 Burlington Northern Annual (© 1981 Motive Power Services) it was rebuilt at West Burlington, Iowa and released April 9, 1975 as NW2u 5. A total of four former GN NW2's were rebuilt before the Comprehensive Locomotive Rebuild Program (CLRP) was terminated on August 1, 1975, with the fourth rebuild (19, ex-BN 469) still on the floor. It was finished and released almost a year later.

Built in February 1941 as CB&Q SW1 9153 (c/n 1285) on EMD Order E375, most of its CB&Q career was spent as the Aurora (Illinois) depot switcher. It was retired by the BN in August 1983 (although it may have been out of service earlier, note the capped stack), later becoming ILSX 1366. I'm no expert, but it looks to me like an oil leak sidelined this locomotive.

Please see Comments below, thanks J. B..

About a half hour before this photo was shot, a road freight arrived that was too long for the arrival track. This forced that train to pull through the east end of that track, part the train and pull forward some more to clear the switch, allowing that half olf train to back into an adjacent empty track. While backing up one boxcar picked the switch and this is the result. See also BN SD40-2 8016 on this site.
