Gee, can you tell that these units have spent their entire service lives within 10 miles of the beach?

Yikes! Maybe "Ruster" would be a more appropriate logo...

Gonna say that unit has spent too much time in salt air. It got pretty ratty quickly.

That salty fog at night will slowly dissolve just about anything that don't move and perhaps even a few that do.

When we took over the Surf Line from the Santa Fe, the signal cases showed what a few decades of salt air can do to cast steel.  Ugly it was.

They kept the units looking pretty good over the years.  But now that they're on the way out, I'd guess they're doing minimal maintenance on them.

Why did SDNR buy only two of these units?

Because that was all they needed, they had a bunch of F40PH-3's already.

I wonder if these will outlast the F40s.
