Miscellaneous GN-related items - seniority rosters, smaller collections or items that don't fit neatly into existing categories. If you're interested in ALL-TIME lists showing dates built/purchased and retired for every piece of GN and predecessor equipment, from the St.Paul & Pacific forward, two CDs are available, covering both MoW and passenger equipment. Contact Ken Middleton at krmiddle@worldnet.att.net for ordering information. SEE ALSO GN_CascadeDivision for more seniority rosters.
