my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific unrebuilt GP9
No unrebuilt GP9's appeared in the Kodachrome Scheme.
The GP9 rebuilding programs ended in 1979, leaving 24 GP9's not rebuilt.
16 of these can be accounted for, as they were reclassified as switchers and numbered 2868-2899.
The other 8, I cannot be sure of... but I believe the above units listed in the table to be correct.
However, #3640 presents an anomoly, this was renumbered in 1978 to #2896, and reclassified as a switcher.
#2878 presents another anomoly... while looking at the photo, it looks like it has 4 exhaust stacks. Joe Strapac mentioned this in an update to the GP9 in his Volume 8 SP Historic Diesels series.
