ICG 7963         
You could pretty much count on ICG to provide a fair amount of variety back in the day. This train rolled by the weather-beaten remains of the old passenger depot in Freeburg, IL with five units -- one GP8, one GP10, one GP11 (in the short-lived all orange paint scheme), a GP30, and a GP35 still wearing GM&O number and colors. ICG was nothing if not colorful back then.

TS _Illinois General Enbarrassed to say I hadn't done all my research prior to posting. 8703 is indeed a GP11. Thanks for the heads-up! 5/29/2011 6:06:16 PM
