BN 5315 (GE 38256) at Lincoln, Neb., on August 20, 1973. Notice this unit’s white safety stripes along the frame appear to be missing a few. BN’s U30C fleet purchased in 1972 included Phase III characteristics, which featured a sharp edge to the wider radiator section where it connects with the hood and no tapering near the top, as provided to earlier U30Cs (like the roster’s Colorado & Southern units). — George R.
