MILW GP9 206
Title:  MILW GP9 206
Description:  MILW GP9 206, Elgin, Illinois, March 7, 1964, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Built in June 1954 as 2432 (c/n 19595) on EMD Order 5351, it was renumbered to 206 and later to 806, retired in January 1981, held for dispostion until May 1984. Note the electrical cable attached to a receptacle just below the headlight. I presume that to be a connection to power the lights in the coaches, and after they run these units around the train, they will plug it into a receptacle on the coach.
