CGW F3 113C
Title:  CGW F3 113C
Description:  Chicago Great Western Railway F3 113C in Saint Paul, Minnesota on February 5, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in February 1949 (c/n 5990) on EMD Order E963A, it retained the CGW road number for a few years after the July 1968 merger, renumbered to 213 in 1971, retired, traded to EMD and scrapped by Saint Louis Auto Shredding (Madison, Illinois) in June 1985. Some folks refer to this as a model F5, however, EMD considered it an F3, built with F3 components in the latest carbody refinement which carried over to the first production F7's. It was equipped with upgraded traction motors (D27B), thus setting it apart from earlier F3's.
