Great Northern SD9 #598

A gift of the BNSF Railway, this SD9 was built for the Great Northern in 1958 as #598 for service around Klamath Falls and later spent many years serving the Interbay yard in Seattle before being retired by the BNSF as #1730. Unique for its dynamic braking system, it was last transported on a mainline in 2005 before coming to the museum in 2020. We will restore this engine as we are able.
