Milwaukee's SD-7's

Milwaukee Road, South Tacoma, May 29, 1960. Here we find MILW 514, an EMD SD7 is a 6-axle diesel locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between February 1952 and November 1953. Power was provided by an EMD 567B 16-cylinder engine which generated 1500 horsepower.

Milwaukee Road had 24 of these units. This unit was orginally numbered 2214.

Immediately you notice the lack of dynamic brake blisters – which can be seen on the unit immediately behind her. Strange for a railroad that had some challenging grades in Washington, Idaho, and Montana!

Railroad Stuff: MILW 514, GM SD-7, 1,500 hp, built 6/52 sn: 19643.
