Remarks & Notes 
Rock Island 4201 and 4206 idle at their Inver Grove, MN diesel facilities south of St. Paul in July 1973. The two units show their Rio Grande heritage, former DRGW 5102 and 5110 respectively. The "Rock" was desperate for motive power in the 70s and also acquired F and E units from Union Pacific.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
