Atlas GP40 #3752...
Part of an order of GP40s (3740-3779) this unit was
built in January 1971 and was practically new
when the Chessie logo started
appearing in 1972. GP40s,
along with GP38 and GP40-2s
usually handled priority jobs, like TOFC trains,
around the system.
To make the Atlas unit more correct
I added a Chessie rock pilot, painted
hoses black, painted the class
lights silver, added the side bell and painted the
ends of the uncoupling levers yellow. I
also painted the small section on the side sill to
show where the ACI card once was, with the
original Blue and Yellow paint
showing through. I also numbered this unit,
as it came unnumbered.
