Remarks & Notes 
The Guilford Transportation Industries gray and orange paint scheme was considered by many to be a downgrade from the Maine Central gold, Boston & Maine blue, and D&H lightning stripe schemes that it replaced. The GTI paint, however, was much better than some of the patch jobs applied to secondhand units brought in from multiple original owners. In this case, one of three former Illinois Terminal SD39’s acquired from the Norfolk Southern is reminiscent of all of those Penn Central patch jobs that dominated the Conrail roster almost a decade earlier.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service over several decades.
