Additional Details:
Electro Motive built F9 covered wagons 818,815 and 810 await the next call to duty at Essex, Montana on July 2, 1979. The quartet of first generation diesel-electrics are assigned to pusher service. In 1979, the largest fleet of F Units was owned and operated by the Burlington Northern with 62 assigned to the Pacific Northwest, mainly in the State of Washington. The fleet is of Great Northern and Northern Pacific origin and is made up of four models F3's, F7's, one FP7 and F9's. Assignments are varied as they see service in drag freights, local service, helper service as mentioned and even hotshots. Continued use, rather than retirement, seems likely as the BN is rebuilding these F Units in 1979 due to the increasing need of motive power on the road.
