Remarks & Notes 
BN 2033 shows off its rear end and its new BN green paint as it awaits its next assignment at Staples, MN along with two other former Great Northern units. As GN 2033, this high hood GP20 was one of the last original Empire Builder scheme units delivered to GN. It also was one of the last high hood, long hood front units delivered. GN's GP30s would usher in low noses and the simplified orange and green scheme. BN 644 is a former GN "iron ore" F unit, and BN 1831 is former GN 679, one of two passenger GP9s GN bought.
