SD40-2 Survivors Volume 3
By CVision Productions

In January 1972, EMD introduced the SD40-2. The SD40-2 and its 645 prime mover have operated on railroads for nearly 50 years. Once superior main line power, it has been overtaken by more efficient computerized engines. Trains featured in this program all have SD40-2’s leading in all kinds of service from the years 2013-2017.
Volume 3 includes BNSF, Canadian Pacific, Union Pacific, Canadian National and CSX trains in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, South Dakota, North Dakota and Indiana. In 2016, CP eliminated nearly all of their SD40-2’s from their roster. C. Vision was in the right place at the right time to capture 3 of the remaining 40-2’s pulling CP trains in Minnesota. Do you love that MRL blue? Montana Rail Link 40-2’s made their way east leading BNSF trains and we were there to record those on the Wayzata Sub! Run through power from RCP&E, DM&E and IC&E are captured on CP trains in the Chicago area. Aside from the Class One’s, you will also enjoy the sights and sounds of a few short lines and regionals including “Dakota and Iowa”, “Rapid City, Pierre and Eastern” and “Indiana Railroad”.
The SD40-2 will always be remembered for its reliability! Its prime mover and large platforms gave this engine a signature sound and look. You can always keep the memories of this locomotive forever in SD40-2 Survivors, Volume 3!
