Out wandering again, I see.  One joy of being single.  

Only 3076 SD I recall was Southern 3076 which showed up in Pueblo, CO one day, courtesy the MP.  Then three months later I was in Florida and the only shootable engine at the Southern facility was the 3076!

Looking forward to finding out the heritage and maybe some more info o0n where you found her.

My guess is it is the former CITX 3076. They got their 2785 from CITX. I think they came onboard about the same time so they probably got both from the same source. If true, it started life as SOO 751 in 1971 as a SD40.

Thank you. Sounds plausible. I didn't see anything to give away its heritage.
