By John F. Strauss, Jr.
Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11, 168 pages, color photos, 100lb coated paper. 2004.
"This volume is a continuation of GN Pictorial Volume Six (now out of print). Volume Seven covers GN freight train operations between 1966 and 1970, and the transition from GN to BN's early years of freight train operations.
"Emphasis is placed on faster schedules in response to increasing competition. These faster schedules were made possible through acquisition of more powerful locomotives and modernized, larger capacity cars. Overall change in products transported during this period is also covered."
