Former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad EMD F3A diesel locomotive # 808B at Bloomingtin Illinois. August 31st, 1973.

I found this photograph from the early years of the former
Illinois Central Gulf Railroad at my Link page -
Fallen Flags.Org, which is located to the right of your
commuter screen at
The Illinois Central Gulf Railroad, was created on August 10th,
1972, with the merger of the Illinois Central and Gulf ,Mobile
& Ohio Railroads, creating a much larger system now controlled
by the former Illinois Central management.
One year in to the merger, these two former G,M & O engines,
were photographed still wearing their former company color
schemes and markings, but now working for the ICG.
