  • Unit did not last on IAIS for very long. The few photos in evidence are from the 1987-1989 period. Does not appear on most rosters, but as the photos show, it was labeled IAIS.
  • Leased from Diesel Supply of Hudson, WI. Was used as the Rock Island switcher, and was returned as soon as 250 was placed in service. (From Fred Cheney, via the IAIS list on 15 Jul 2008.)
