Remarks & Notes 
NYC GP7's 5764 and 5795 leads train 406 to Chicago at Kankakee, Illinois on February 28, 1958. Rated at 1500hp each and having a heavy train it was hard for the Geeps to maintain track speed. Many of the Central's GP7's were equipped with steam generators for passenger service. Photo from my slide collection, no photographer information listed.
