Remarks & Notes 
This vintage SW1200 was built as the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy #9271 in 1955 and is now working for US Steel's Granite City Works as their #1191. Here, we see it letting out the smoke as it shoves hard on a cut of empties that will be taken into the plant for loading. US Steel has been looking to sell of some of their remaining rail operations, due to an economic downturn.
