Rebuilt F40PH's In-Transit Chicago Area
Author: kevink

Per a local Chicago group, 2 rebuilt F40PH's were northbound on the Indiana Harbor Belt in La Grange, IL yesterday (3/13). Numbers are 221 and 231 and both are painted blue with yellow grabs and handrails, no name or apparent reporting marks. Speculation is that they are former Amtrak locomotives heading to the Ontario Northland. For sure they are not former Amtrak 221 or 231. The 221 is now NPCU 90221 and currently running in Hiawatha Service between Chicago and Milwaukee. The 231 is currently at the Nevada RR Museum in Boulder, NV as reported here: https://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?1,4747061,4747281#msg-4747281

Saw them today at CN’s Glenn Yard in Chicago. Looks like they only have one rear roof cooling fan now so wonder if they are now just a HEP equipped cab car.
