six GMD built F40s that were originally GO Transit 510-515. They were sold to Amtrak and were
renumbered 410-415 - overhauled by Conrail. One of the spotting features of the GMD F40s were
the small anti climbers on the front end. VIA's F40s also have this feature. Any idea when and
where this picture was taken?

My favorite locomotive in the fleet is the F40ph-2C. It's interesting to see which locomotives they plan on selecting to replace these aging locomotives.

Whenever the leased ILDOT Chargers arrive at BET, the 2 MP36's are sent as trade in fodder,and the WORST unit(s) in the fleet get "retired".
