Remarks & Notes 
A quintet of EMD 567 V-16 diesel engines all fit nicely on a 50 ft. CNW flat car, pictured at the Oelwein, Iowa diesel shops, once the heart of the Chicago Great Western Railroad. During this period CNW was rebuilding a lot of GP7/9s and chopping noses. I suspect these engines were being retired and sold for scrap.
