ICG 800
Title:  ICG 800
Description:  This SW8 was built in November 1952 as Tremont & Gulf 75, and became Illinois Central 800 after the IC bought the T&G in August 1959. It wore its IC black paint scheme well into the ICG era, and was repainted into the unusual -- and perhaps unique -- black ICG scheme in mid-1981. It also received full-length handrails at the same time. The unit was sold c. 1986.
