M/P PHOTO SECTION
F45 #440 was a significant locomotive in GN history. It was the last locomotive delivered to GN prior to the BN merger. This photo was taken at Hillyard, WA in September 1969. This was 440's initial run from the Twin Cities to Seattle. The loco had stopped for a crew change at Hillyard. Your author was given an opportunity to go into the loco and "look around". This is a far cry from the way railfans are treated today.
