Green Bay & Western #2407

Green Bay & Western RSD-15 #2407 at the Illinois Railway Museum on May 23, 2004

Green Bay & Western #2407 is a 2400 horsepower RSD-15 built by Alco in May 1960 as Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe #841. Santa Fe renumbered it to #9841 in October 1969. In 1975 it was sold to the Lake Superior & Ishpeming where it became #2402. It was one of 6 LS&I RSD-15s acquired by the Green Bay & Western in November 1989. It was retired August 27, 1993 when the GB&W was merged into the Wisconsin Central, and was sold to the Illinois Railway Museum in October 1996. The other five GB&W RSD-15s were scrapped by March 1996. The Wisconsin Central was merged into Canadian National on October 9, 1999. The Green Bay & Western does still exist as a company within CN, though only on paper.
