GMD SD40-2W 5258 was 1 of only 2 test bed GMDs (SD40-2W/fuel tender/SD40-2W) that had been converted to run on LNG fuel for test purposes a few years back and acquired the SD45-like flares on the rear of the long hood in the process. It’s since been converted to regular diesel operation and this amazing catch is such a rarity that it even eclipses the NS SD40-2 4th unit out…. A rarity itself!
