my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
5341 - 5413
73 units delivered
D&RGW was the only other Railroad to purchase the 'Tunnel Motor' version of EMD's SD40-2 series, receiving 5 orders over a 6 year period.
The 'merger' of D&RGW and SP in April of 1988 brought all the 'tunnel motors' under one owner.
For paint and other details, best consult the references listed below, however, the major difference between D&RGW and SP SD40T-2's is the DRGW units have shorter fuel tanks.
#5341-5373 had 81" noses and the #5374-5413 had 88" noses. As these were delivered in 5 orders there are a lot of other minor differences between them. As always, consult a photograph of the unit you wish to model to get it right.
Some units received 'Speed Lettering' paint, but still carried their original numbers.
