4008 leads a string of U36Bs at Lorton.

At one point the locomotive was damaged in a grade crossing accident.

Like the other auto-train locomotives, 4008 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.
