Remarks & Notes 
BN 640 heads up an interesting mixture of former Great Northern and Northern Pacific F units at the Belknap St. roundhouse in Superior, WI, September 1970, about six months after the BN merger. These F units typically handled ore trains to and from Kelly Lake, MN and Mesabi Range taconite plants. They could also be found on trains to the Twin Cities, Grand Forks, and Staples, MN.
