Museum
The GE BQ23-7 was a model of diesel locomotive manufactured by General Electric, built between 1978 and 1979. It was mechanically identical to a regular B23-7, but equipped with an enlarged operating cab for accommodating the train crew, thus eliminating the caboose from the rear of freight trains. Only ten were built, all for the Seaboard Coast Line railroad. CSX later inherited these locomotives, operating them into the late 1990s. These have come to be nicknamed 'Aegis Cruisers' by some railfans, due to the boxy shape of the locomotive resembling the superstructure of the guided missile cruiser.
