Remarks & Notes 
Switching the Rock Island yard in Amarillo, Texas, is RI SW8 826. The end-cab switcher was built for the railroad by General Motors Electro-Motive Division in November 1952, 20 years and 4 months before it was photographed on March 4, 1973. (Western Maryland GP9 29 was, at this time, on lease to the Rock Island.)

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