Title:  BN SW7 136
Description:  BN SW7 136, Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 22, 1984, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Built in March 1950 as GN SW7 164 (c/n 9570) on EMD Order 4005, it became BN 136, was retired in October 1985 and went to ILSX in May 1986. I cannot explain the Flexicoil trucks, modified headlight, or the exhaust stacks (yet) and I'm still trying to figure out when EMD introduced the Flexicoil switcher truck. Please see Comments below, thanks J. B..
