Remarks & Notes 
The SP got trackage rights over the Santa Fe side of things as a concession of the BNSF merger in 1995. Then the SP would run trains via the BN and the ATSF side thru places like Galesburg. Here a westbound is powered up as they make track speed thru Cameron, west of Galesburg on the Chilly Sub. The speed lettering units looked really good! Alittle history with 7486...Wasn't alot of the SD45's that got speed lettering. This unit went off the UP roster in June 1999 and was returned to the CIT Group and is now in the lease fleet as CEFX 9486. Looks like the units has been working for the Dallas, Garland & Northeastern Railroad for awhile now.

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.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
