SCL's specifications included Blomberg trucks, which would not otherwise have been fitted.

The locomotive was geared for passenger service rather than switching.

These were hardworking locomotives, and it shows.

Like the other auto-train locomotives, 4002 was eventually scrapped. After its time on the auto-train, the locomotive went into storage at Oelwein, Iowa where it sat awating a buyer that never came. The locomotive was cut up on-site in 1984-85.
