Locomotive
4006

Locomotive #4006 was in auto-train's second batch of locomotives -- a U36B built by GE in December 1972 (builder's number 38745) to specifications of the SCL, auto-train's major "host" railroad.

Once again, they included Blomberg trucks.

Like the other auto-train locomotives, 4006 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.
