3023S-2ALCo7651212/19481/1969Purchased by Relco in March 1969 and renumbered to RE1008. It was used by Chevron in Baton Rouge, LA from 1971 to 1980. It was then sent to Minooka for a rebuild. According to the records, it was then renumbered to RE808. However for some reason the RE1008 number remained stenciled on the locomotive. After the rebuild it was sent to Bunge in Vicksburg, MS and was used there until 1998.Link
