BN SD7 6024
Title:  BN SD7 6024
Description:  Burlington Northern Railroad SD7 6024 at Clyde, Illinois on February 26, 1984, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built as CB&Q SD7 301 in May 1953 (c/n 18321) on EMD Order 5242, it became BN 6024 and one source states that it was retired in September 1983. It is stencilled CENTRALIA, perhaps it lingered a bit before being forwarded to Clyde for storage and disposition. I can't be certain, but it's possible that the rear exhaust stack is covered with some white material.

BN SD7 6052
Title:  BN SD7 6052
Description:  Burlington Northern Railroad SD7 6052 at Cicero, Illinois on an unknown day in June 1981, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built as CB&Q SD7 404 in November 1952 (c/n 17400) on EMD Order 5140, it became BN 6052 and was retired in August 1983. This was one of 12 lightweight SD7's built for the Burlington for use on branch lines that could not support heavier locomotives. Although heavier than a GP7, it distributed the weight across two more axles, thus presenting a lighter load per axle to the rails.

BN SD7 6053
Title:  BN SD7 6053
Description:  Burlington Northern Railroad SD7 6053 at Clyde, Illinois on an unknown day in October 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built as CB&Q SD7 405 in November 1952 (c/n 17401) on EMD Order 5140, it became BN 6053 and was retired in August 1983. It has a CB&Q stainless steel model plate indicating that it is an SD9, and the frame is also stenciled SD9 at the rear. I believe this might be a shop error. It still has the class lights centered over the numberboards and mounted on access doors. To upgrade this unit to SD9 standards might indicate the changeout of the prime mover from a 567B to a 567C. I'm still investigating this anomaly.

BN SD7 6055
Title:  BN SD7 6055
Description:  Burlington Northern Railroad SD7 6055 at Clyde, Illinois on July 4, 1982, Kodachrome by Gib Allbach, Chuck Zeiler collection. Built as CB&Q SD7 407 in December 1952 (c/n 17403) on EMD Order 5140, it became BN 6055 and was retired in March 1983. A minor spotting note: apparently during routine maintenance someone replaced the front running board light and put the cover on upside down, or got one from another unit. Note the diagonal stripe mismatch.

BN SD7 6059
Title:  BN SD7 6059
Description:  Burlington Northern Railroad SD7 6059 at Clyde, Illinois on an unknown day in October 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built as CB&Q SD7 411 in December 1952 (c/n 17407) on EMD Order 5140, it became BN 6059 and was retired in August 1983. This particular unit picked up an extra electrical receptacle at the top of the short hood next to the class light. Here is the explanation, from former CB&Q electrician and later BN Diesel Superintendent Wesley Haas (by way of Hol Wagner): This is the 64 volt receptacle for the Lincoln Rotary, to run control circuits and anything that required the 64 volt power for the plow. The plow had a small diesel engine to supply 110 volts for interior lighting.
