Given the constant striving for locomotive uniformity and interchangability at the Class 1’s, it bewilders me that they would introduce locomotives into their fleet that can/should only be used for certain applications, just to save a few bucks. I would think the complications they’re introducing into their locomotive management system would far outweigh the up-front savings.


Next thing you know they will start ordering "B" units!
