SP 8579
Title:  SP 8579
Description:  A rebuilt SD40M-2 celebrating a year of service with Southern Pacific idles in SP's Broadway Yard in South Fort Worth. This locomotive was originally delivered to Chicago & Northwestern as SD45 968 in February 1968 and served CNW until retirement which was rebuilt by Morrison-Knudsen into an SD40M-2 and released on July 1994. During the rebuild this locomotive lost the distinctive flared radiators of the SD45 and had cab airconditioning installed per SP specifications. After the UP merger this locomotive served the new owner until being placed into storage around 2010 and can be seen parked in Sterling, IL in full SP paint.

Description:  Unpatched but stored and lease expired SP 8579 looks pretty good compared to its sisters in the dead line, but it will probably never turn another revenue wheel for the UP.
