ICG Switchers         
Five years after the IC-GM&O merger these ICG SW9's at North Baton Rouge Yard were still painted IC black, but they had had their green diamond cab emblems removed. In 1981 these were rebuilt into SW14's 1489 and 1484, and continued to work for many more years.

Joseph Yarbrough General Quite interesting that ICG removed the Green Diamond logos from the cabs of all the switchers in Baton Rouge. I'm going to have to research this myself to see what I can come up with. I'll let you know if I find out anything about this. 2/2/2010 3:22:09 PM
Bernie Feltman General I prefer the green diamonds 2/2/2010 10:04:57 PM
Earl Hampton General I agree it looks funny, almost like a leased engine....... 2/9/2010 11:23:51 AM
