B&O GP-30 at Bensenville 1978 , by Mark LLanuza on Flickr.
Caption: “It’s 1978 and one of the worst winters for many railroads but the Milwaukee Road was hit the hardest with no money to fix dead units. They leased many units from other railroads like B&O, CN, and Southern. We’re at Bensenville along York Road with this southbound waiting to get into Bensenville Yard with a GP30 leading this Milwaukee train.”
