    Please see the following link for a photograph of Frisco GP-7 614.

    This unit has a steam generator. Note the steam generator exhaust stack and air inlet on the short hood. In addition, there are rectangular spark arresters on the exhaust stacks on the roof.

    This is one of several units that lasted in black and yellow paint until retirement. The locomotive is still even in the full chevron stripe scheme! This unit was retired and used as a trade in to EMD on 11/16/1976.

    The locomotive is on the local working in Joplin, MO. The photograph is dated 8/1976.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!
