Remarks & Notes 
While visiting NRE in Silvis to inspect Eldon, IA's GP7 purchase, we were allowed to tour the entire ex-Rock Island complex with an escort and proper PPE. This ex-BN SD40-2 is in the process of being stripped and scrapped. In the foreground are generators being prepared for rebuild. The gray enclosure is the modern paint booth for NRE.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
