The Illinois Railway Museum originally got this GP7 for parts.

But in a surprising turn of events, they freed up the prime mover and made the locomotive operational. Have to admire the robustness of EMD diesels.

They have been repainting it this year, and just finished the inside of the cab.

I imagine we will see it out on IRM's Diesel Days (Aug 11-12).

Now if they can find a way to turn 1100 Facebook "likes" into cash donations. :(
