Burlington Northern Railroad SD24 6253 at Cicero, Illinois on May 19, 1982, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built as CB&Q 513 in May 1959 ( c/n 25210 ) on EMD Order 5598, it became BN 6253 sometime after the March 2, 1970 merger, and was retired in June 1982. It was built with a high short hood, but encountered a truckload of corn in August 1975 at Henderson, Illinois. It was sent to West Burlington, Iowa for repairs, where it received a chopped hood and was returned to service in October 1975.
