Remarks & Notes 
What I believe is the last active ex-IC SW14 takes the R98081 local across 99th Street on the old EJ&E Lakefront Line. The train will continue along Calumet Park on the "East Side" of the city to the Port of Chicago less than a mile away. There were a total of 112 SW14s rebuilt from SW7s and SW9s by the Illinois Central at their Paducah Shops between 1978 & 1982. While this may be the lone survivor on the CN, a handful have found new homes at various industries around the country.

Some how, these locomotives have managed to last this long with the colors of their previous owners, which have since vanished into history.
