Remarks & Notes 
Built in 1945 this E7 had seen the world figuratively speaking of course. When I worked on them after Amtrak started running trains from Milwaukee to St.Louis on the Milwaukee Road and GM&O through Chicago Union Station,I got many a chance to look through their log books. There was a glove box on the Fireman's side that held the old log's that the GM&O kept on these locomotives. Mind you, the miles on Amtrak were not logged but all the miles from 45 to 71 were. All of these E7's that we had showed over 3.3 million miles logged. No telling how many they ran off for Amtrak until they ended up in the Paducah Shops Yard waiting disposition. I look back now and I've always wondered what happened to those log books...hopefully they were preserved.
