From the back of the card:

“Great Northern Railway

Great Northern EMD E-7 diesel units, with No. 504 i the lead, greet the morning sun between Mennapolis and St. Paul, Minn., with the new streamlined “Empire Builder” in 1947. In a few more minutes, these locomotives will be resting and the “Empire Builder” will be speeding over the Burlington’s rails on the last lap from Seattle and Portland to Chicago.“

The post card was published by Lyman E. Cox of Sacramento, CA. No date is given for the postcard.

GN E7A 504B (to GN 504C, to GN 509, to BN 9907)
