026 - Thursday afternoon - Sept 28 - Pioneer Railway & Mid-America Locomotive

Indiana Southwestern (a part of Pioneer Railcorp) / PREX GP8 806 in Evansville, Indiana.

This engine was built as Illinois Central GP7 8969. When Illinois Central Gulf embarked on a rebuild program for their older Geeps, this engine
was rebuilt into "GP8" 7969. ICG sold this locomotive to the Iowa Interstate, as IAIS 469.
Then it was sold again this time to IRECO, which numbered it IREX 806. Pioneer Railcorp purchased it, but retained the number (now PREX 806)
