Standing on the Main Street viaduct in Bloomington, Illinois on May 16, 1959 my brother, David Leonard, captured this view of EMD SW-7 No. 8907 coming east with a switching move. This engine was one of a group of seven NYC System 1200-horsepower SW-7s, Nos. 8904-8910 of class DES-14g, that Electro-Motive Division built in 1950 which were lettered for the Peoria & Eastern. The group kept the same numbers on the Penn Central roster, but this No. 8907 was apparently not among them. A second 8907, an EMD 1000-horsepower NW2, was transferred to the P&E from the Indiana Harbor Belt (original numbered 8715) in 1966. What became of this 8907 is unknown. The track on the right is the Nickel Plate's line to Peoria, which paralleled the P&E through Bloomington. Today the P&E track is gone and PC/Conrail successor Norfolk Southern uses the former Nickel Plate to reach Good Yard, which services the Rivian (formerly Mitsubishi) plant in Normal, and onward to the Peoria area.
