Locomotive #4005 was the first of auto-train's second batch of road locomotives -- a U36B built by GE in December 1972 (builder's number 38744) to specifications of the SCL.

This second batch also came with Blomberg trucks.

Like the other auto-train locomotives, 4005 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.
