    • AFAIK, the GP40 never took hold on the Mopac roster. Their four-axle roster skipped from GP35 and a few GP38s built as wreck replacements and went straight to the GP38-2. They were becoming enamoured of six axle mainline power, which in that era was less common on a flatlands road.

  1. The info concerning the ex-GM&O through Sparta, IL is blatantly incorrect… the line is still used today with no abandonment plans of any sort. However, the ex-GM&O has been pulled up on either side of Sparta (just beyond Baldwin,IL to the north and just beyond Percy, IL to the south).
