General Notes:

a. C&NW 1001 (2nd)-1008 (2nd) purchased second hand from Precision National Corp., Mount Vernon, Illinois, in early 1973. Previous owner road numbers are direct from C&NW records; builder's data to match previous road numbers is from other sources. SP shown as "SOU" in C&NW records. Ex-KCS 1216 (EMD 5561, June 1948) was sold to C&NW at the same time as 1002-1008, being assigned C&NW number 1001. Upon inspection, C&NW rejected the unit and PNC substituted ex-P&LE 8706 in its place; ex-P&LE 8706 then became C&NW 1001. PNC made ex-KCS 1216 serviceable later in 1973 and sold the unit to DuPont as their 108.
b. C&NW 1004 (2nd) shown in C&NW records as ex-Grand Trunk Western 1. The original unit, GTW 7909, had its road number painted out prior to its sale, and movement, to Precision National, displaying GTW 1 as its road number while in transit to Precision National, and later sale to C&NW. This was for transportation convenience only as AAR and FRA interchange rules require a road number on any locomotive for movement in interchange. Precision National has done this many times on many locomotives which it has purchased over the past 20 years, confusing roster keepers with several new "No. 1" locomotives for various railroads that sell their locomotives to Precision.

Notes:

1. Traded to EMD, August 1986, scrapped by St. Louis Auto Shredding, Madison, Illinois
2. Sold to Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad, Boone, Iowa, March 1986.
