BN 1526
Title:  BN 1526
Description:  Early BN patch job on the 1526. Seems some effort went into removing the "GN tatoo" just under the engineers window. Also from the diesel spotter guide first edition it said the way you can tell the difference between a GP7 and a GP9 is that the GP7 has 3 louvers under the cab and a GP9 has one or none.
