Locomotive
4016

Locomotive #4016 was the last of auto-train's fourth batch of road locomotives -- a U36B built by GE in December 1974 (builder's number 40067) to specifications of the SCL.

Ordered, but not delivered to auto-train due to financial difficulties. The locomotive was repainted to become Conrail 2974.
