Remarks & Notes 
It is always a treat to find a nice-looking GP7 sixty-three years after it was built! Respondek Railroad Corporation GP8 1800 rolled out of EMD's Illnois factory in 1951 as United States Army GP7 1838. The engine, which rides on AAR trucks from an Alco trade-in, was later Alaska Railroad 1801, Badger Lumber (BDLX) 1801, Trans Global Solutions (ECRX) 1801 and Missouri Central (MOC) 1800 before being purchased by Respondek. Photographed on railroad property with permission and full PPE.
