CSS&SB GP7 615
Title:  CSS&SB GP7 615
Description:  CSS&SB GP7 615 at Michigan City, Indiana, October, 1980, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Admittedly a bad photo, it was shot from a passing train. Number 615 was built in October 1952 as FEC GP7 615 (c/n 17352) on EMD Order 6416. The South Shore had eight GP7's from parent C&O in the late-1970's, and as the electric freight locomotives were gradually retired, there came a neeed for additional diesel power, so three GP7's were acquired from the FEC. The following is recalled by J. D. Santucci (Hot Times On The High Iron at railroad.net):

These three units (#'s 614, 615, 618) had been stored for quite some time before coming to the South Shore. They were in poor mechanical shape. Unlike the former C&O Geeps, these units were never repainted or renumbered. They carried their FEC 600 series numbers up to the end of their days on the South Shore. With the addition of the former FEC units, all remaining electric locomotives except the Little Joe’s were retired. The Engineers at the Shore often spoke of their disdain for these Geeps. They complained of their poor mechanical and electrical condition and frequent problems encountered with their operation. They told of the former FEC units being infested with mice while stored in Florida. The mice apparently made the trip to Indiana. Wiring was badly damaged by these pesky critters.

CSS&SB GP7 1504
Title:  CSS&SB GP7 1504
Description:  Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad GP7 1504 at Michigan City, Indiana on an unknown day in October 1978, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Number 1504 was built in November 1951 as C&O GP7 5764 (c/n 15270) on EMD Order 5085. In late 1966 the Interstate Commerce Commission granted approval for the Chesapeake & Ohio to purchase the South Shore. This transaction was completed in 1967, and several GP7's were transferred to that property. Bethlehem Steel would not allow electric locomotives into their facility so diesels were required. Several more Geeps came from C&O to replace aging electric locomotives. These Geeps wore the solid blue with yellow trim of C&O and were numbered 1501 to 1508, a reflection of their horsepower rating. They carried the South Shore logo on their car bodies, no reference to parent C&O other than the colors. Number 5764 became 1504 on the South Shore, returning to the C&O in 1977 and renumbered back to 5764, sold for scrap in 1986. In 1984 the Venango River Corporation purchased the South Shore from Chessie System.
