In the early 1980's, the Grand Trunk Western was looking to add to their roster as traffic and profits rose. In addition to acquiring a large number of Ex-UP SD40-2's, they also acquired a small amount of GP38-2's from P&LE. P&LE acquired these from Rock Island and painted a few black, and when GTW received them, they were quickly painted with the GT logo, but kept black to help place power into service quicker. Here, a pair of the former P&LE geeps and an SD40 enter the yard in Durand to pick up cars for their westbound train. 35mm slide from my collection, photo by W.E. Grove.
