Remarks & Notes 
Ending its career where it started, BN 9908, former GN 510, graces the point of the Empire Builder as it loads baggage and passengers prior to its evening departure from Minneapolis for Spokane, Seattle and Portland. Bought for Empire Builder service in the 1940s, GN pulled the E units off the premier trains replacing them with F units and eventually SDP40s and SDP45s. By April 1971, days before the start up of Amtrak, BN had pulled the newer power over to freight service and the old Es and Fs once again started handling the Builder. I would think this power set would have been exchanged at Havre, MT for a set of all F units for the western portion of their journey over the Rockies and Cascades.
