MILW CFA16-4 26A
Title:  MILW CFA16-4 26A
Description:  MILW CFA16-4 26A at Bensenville, Illinois on February 14, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built by F-M in Beloit, Wisconsin during August 1951 (c/n 16L485) it was traded to EMD in 1968. The Milwaukee Road had 12 of these cabs (#'s 23A,C - 28A,C) and six matching B-units (CFB16-4, #'s 23B - 28B). They saw extensive use on the Chicago Terre Haute & Southeastern, (Bensenville to Louisville, Kentucky), and up to Milwaukee. The Milwaukee directly served F-M's Beloit shops, and became the first customer and second largest owner of F-M products (152 units), behind only the PRR (200 units).
