my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
5501 - 5517
17 units delivered
These SD50's were originally a repeat order for 20 more SD40T-2's.
Delivered in 1984 to D&RGW, in Rio Grande paint, they were tacked onto the end of a CSX order, and so exhibit Chessie traits, ie. hood mounted bell and 'mail-slot' battery box doors.
These D&RGW locos entered the SP roster, when the D&RGW bought SP in 1988.
At some point in time ?, these units began to appear in the SP Merger Speed Lettering paint, keeping their original D&RGW numbers.
