IANR deadline power
Title:  IANR deadline power
Description:  Iowa Northern bought these GP7s for $1 years ago with the intent of getting at least one of them running for a museum piece or business car runs. They haven't been touched by anybody but mother nature since being moved here from Waterloo. IANR 2003 is a GP20 that was parked because the FRA ruled there were too many locos on the active roster (2003 was the loco in the worst shape at the time). Hopefully one day at least one of these will run!

CNW 4173
Title:  CNW 4173
Description:  4173 was in the worst shape of the IANRs dead GP7s. Shes missing her prime mover, hood doors, cab doors, and probably more things than meets the eye. Shes in rough shape but we can see proof that she was a trooper!
