Between January and April/May of 1970 all 29 C-628's were leased to the Louisville and Nashville. Burlington Northern then leased 12 of them, returning them from June until August. November '70 to January 1971 saw 19 various C-628's being leased again by the L&N until May 1971 when they were all back on SP soil. While on the L&N, 7121 was wrecked and repaired at a GE workshop with a GE cab, with L&N picking up the repair bill.
