Five long dirt road miles into the northern Maine woods, I find 450 on its way back to Oakfield approaching St. Croix Road.
A former Amtrak F40PH rebuild in Canadian American paint crosses Garfield Rd. in Masardis.
Heading south past Masardis Trading Post.
Plow extra stops in Millinocket before heading to Fort Kent
The rebuilt F40u's have end platforms for switching; rebuilt fuel tanks and were regeared for freight work. Still lettered for CDAC, these units hopefully will find a new home in the near future.
Ex Amtrak 450 wears a unique paint scheme. The scheme was simplified on the other similar rebuilds.
