CRI&P GP7R 4508
Title:  CRI&P GP7R 4508
Description:  CRI&P GP7R 4508 at the Rocket House about 47th Street, Chicago, Illinois on an unknown day in April 1975, photo by S. Downey, Chuck Zeiler collection. Built in July 1952 as CRI&P 1260 (c/n 16469) on EMD Order 5136, it was rebuilt sometime in early 1975 to GP7R 4508.

By early 1975, the Rock Island could no longer pay its bills, and petitioned the backruptcy courts for reorganization and protection from creditors on March 17, 1975. Federal Judge Frank McGarr appointed as trustee William M. Gibbons, who promptly appointed John W. Ingram as president and CEO. One of Ingram's first actions was to announce a new paint scheme and image, and this may or may not be the first locomotive to wear that New Image paint. It later became C&NW 4162.
