Since CNJ had Trainmasters C&O looked at SDP40s on Trainmaster trucks but B&O had few sd40s. So they decided on gp40p as a better idea. Gary

That may explain why the GP40P's had the heaviest axle loading for four-motored locomotives.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul
