Burlington Northern 7502
BN 7502 photo here
Don't waste time checking your Diesel Spotters Guide for the year EMD built a cabless SD40-2; it didn't! The six-axle booster 7502 shown here was built by BN's West Burlington shop from wrecked SD40-2 6812. The unit's dynamic brake equipment was relocated to the space vacated by the missing cab; the purpose was to eliminate common engine overheating problems. (R.
