General Notes:

a. Equipped with 16-567BC engines rather than normal for GP18 16-567D1 engines. Also equipped with four 3-foot radiator fans rather than two 4-foot radiator fans, as on a normal GP18. This change in design configuration is explained by the use of several components from the six 6500 class F3s that were used as direct trade-in units. At least one unit, C&NW 1779, was wrongly stenciled during its career as a GP9.
b. C&NW 1776 painted in a red, white, and blue scheme in August 1975 to commemorate the 200th birthday of the United States of America. Repainted back to normal C&NW yellow and green in early December 1978.
