Remarks & Notes 
A little info on the locos, from Jody Moore... UPY 2004 - Converted from former SOO fuel tender (GP9) 4001 in Feb. 2005. The unit was shipped to JBS in July 2008 for conversion to RP20BD genset. NITX 1706 - Unit rebuilt for lease to the Virginia International Terminal and Virginia Ports. Rebuilt from former GG20B demonstrator RPRX 2405. RPRX 2403/NITX 1707 Unit wears RPRX number and cab markings in photo. This unit is undergoing the same rebuild as NITX 1706, again from a former GG20B. Both of the NITX units are currently under NS ownership as per an agreement with Railpower to waive a mechanic's lien placed against the units for the rebuild work.
