Surviving SD40s

Conrail inherited its 118 SD40's from Penn Central (nee-PRR) and the CNJ. These 3000hp units were powerful and reliable, and without a doubt lead to Conrail's eventual purchase of its fleet of the upgraded SD40-2. All of Conrail's SD40's were retired, sold or rebuilt into SD40-2R's by 1994. SD40's can still be found performing service on other roads today.
