NS SD40-2 high hood locations?
Author: mick7070

Would anyone know the location of the 10 NS high hood SD40-2's?
Seems all are yard based at locations such as Elkhard IN, Detriot MI, Irondale AL and Crewe VA.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I do not know the answer. But, I do find it very interesting that NS used the same road numbers they were given by NW in 1973!

Interestingly, N&W and Southern had very little overlap with their roster numbers.

Check with Harrisburg fans.  I'll be there next week, and if this post is still live I'll report.

I believe there's one floating around the Decatur, IL area. Thinking I saw it as recent as a couple weeks ago.

Improbably, in one of the few overlaps, there were GP35s from N&W and from Southern (ex-CofG).

and they all were high hood units, too. The fix was simple with the conflicting Southern (CofGA) units just getting renumbered above the N&W top of class unit, No. 239.

I think 1635 or 1636 is in Altoona. I saw a highhood SD40-2 driving by the yard yesterday.

Pomona Yard in Greensboro has them occasionally.

NS roster 7/4/2022 shows 10 equipped with remote control, likely in harrisburg Enola and Rutherford Yards.
