Remarks & Notes 
Helping the Illinois Central with a power shortage, a quartet of leased F7s snake through switches as they lead a northbound freight off the St. Louis line onto the mainline at Gilman, IL. The first and last units are Bessemer & Lake Erie, the two middle units are from leasing company Precision Engineering (later Precision National).
