Repainted from their former Guilford colors, Pan Am Railways operates several GP40-2L locomotives in the dark blue scheme. Carrying Maine Central reporting marks, they can be found operating throughout the northeast.

PROTOTYPE HISTORY:

Southern Pacific in 1974 purchased from EMD the GP40P-2 with almost every conceivable EMD/SP option at the time, with exception of Locotrol and Tunnel Motor style radiators. These locomotives were very distinctive with their longer frame and flared radiator grills. With intention to retire the Fairbanks-Morse Train Masters, the GP40P-2 were assigned out of the Bay Area, for commute service between San Francisco and San Jose. SP #3197 was painted in commemorative red-white-blue bicentennial livery in 1975 and remained this way until 1980 when it was returned to the red and grey.
