Remarks & Notes 
The face only a Mother could love...The BQ23-7 was unique to the Seaboard Coast Line. 25 units were produced in 1978 and 1979. They had 4 axle trucks and were rated at 2250 H.P. The purpose for the extra-large cabs was to provide quarters for the train crew on trains without cabooses.
