Rock Island Geep 1329 1st and 2nd
Posted by SSW9389 on Friday, August 6, 2021 7:13 AM

This particular Geep has two serial numbers as it was wrecked and rebuilt early in its time on the Rock Island. I'm asking for information on the wreck and the type of rebuild completed by EMD. The first 1329 was a GP9 built by EMD as serial #25219 on order 5599 in April 1959. The second 1329  was a Geep? rebuilt by EMD as serial #26348 on repair order 8069 in November 1960. The second 1329 is described as having 1750 horsepower, some sites carry it as a GP9 and some as a GP18. Is there a separate Rock Island folio sheet on this second unit?
