Illinois Central EMD SW7 9310 switches the Bloomington, Illinois yard in August 1956 as two of my teenage friends stroll by. Electro-Motive Division delivered it in 1950. In 1957 it was renumbered 1210 to make room for a GP7 unit delivered the following year, and in 1979 to Illinois Central Gulf 1420. At some point it was rebuilt into an SW14, as were others in its group, and reportedly is still in service at Richmond, California.
