The SD40-2; a Hall of Fame locomotive if ever there was one.

Don't know if that specific SD40-2 is, but the type is only two years shy of being a half-century old. The 1980 book Second Diesel Spotters Guide Update gives the SD40-2's beginning of production as January 1972. And pretty much the 1980s too, "... when railroads experienced high maintenance expenses for a relatively minor advance in horsepower per unit, they returned to the 16-cylinder models, making the SD40-2 practically the standard locomotive of the late 1970's." That was from page 51 of the above book. Paragraph starts by mentioning that railroads having SD45s took a while to decide whether spending money on lower horsepower locomotives was a good thing.

This is a very far hike. I don't think I have ever seen someone take a photo from here.
