End of the Line!

Coos Bay, Oregon. April 29, 1994. What a terrible ending for a magnificent machine! This unit was apparently in a group of 30 or so that Espee designated heavy yard switchers - GP-9E. As compared to the glory days on the erection floor at La Grange, this is obscene.

Railroad Stuff: Built Electro-Motive Division 1956, sn: 22897. Ex North Coast Railroad 2872. Acquired by Northwestern Pacific in 1966, stored out of service in Eureka, California in 1998.
