Remarks & Notes 
VANCOUVER WA Feb 19 2011 — Columbia Business Center CBCX SSB1200 565 shows off its new paint job. It is tied down east of the interchange track. The elevated BNSF mains are in the background. Columbia Business Center interchanges with BNSF. EMC built the unit as Norfolk and Western 2350 (o/n E173, s/n 725) in September 1937. It was later renumbered NW 2400. EMD rebuilt the unit (o/n 7573 b/n 25224) in June 1959 as SW1200 2439 and delivered it to Santa Fe in zebra stripe paint. After being retired Nov 28 1973 Santa Fe’s San Bernardino shops rebuilt it into Switcher San Bernardino 1200, renumbered it 1239 and painted it Santa Fe blue with yellow warbonnet on Feb 8 1974. It was retired a second time by Santa Fe and made its way to Amtrak as AMTK 565 in black and silver on Aug 31 1984. From there it found its way to the business center as CBCX 565 in Amtrak black and silver. Sometime in late 2009 to early 2010 it was repainted into the orange and black livery it wears in this photo. My photo.
