MILW H-16-44 429
Title:  MILW H-16-44 429
Description:  Milwaukee Road F-M H16-44 429 at Savanna, Illinois on July 23, 1963, photograph by Chuck Zeiler. Built by Fairbanks-Morse as road number 2509 in January 1956 ( c/n 16L994 ), class 16-FRS on the Milwaukee, it was renumbered to 429 and retired in February 1976. More information from Joe Lewnard:

This is a neat photo Chuck, as it's one of the few photos I've seen of the original 429, which in this photo is a Phase III unit. To my knowledge it was wrecked and retired in the mid-1960s, and 401, an H16-44 with a Phase 1 carbody, was renumbered to 429 for accounting purposes. The unit retired in 1976 was actually the former 401. Milwaukee Road's diesel roster can be quite confusing.
