ROOM # SDP 45, Great Northern at Isaac Walton
 
Just returned from the Rochelle and on my stop at the Isaac Walton Inn, I observed, sitting on a temporary spur,the blue and white Great Northern, ex UP SDP 45 #844 delivered two days prior. The interior has been gutted except for the cab, and the traction motors are gone It will be converted to a room, much like their cabooses. The final location will be near the bridge, east of the Inn.

You mean ex Santa Fe F45, right?

Boy, did I get it wrong, it is an F45, and also the number. It is 441. Blame it on the long drive and lack of sleep. Thanks for the correction.

Here's a video I took of it while it was in transit. Watch in HD for the full experience.
