Thanks for sharing that... wonder if it will still sound like a "screaming thunder box."

Are the GP40TCs still around? They were older then the F40PHs, so I'm guessing no, but thought I'd ask anyway. (They were probably wiped out with the F40s, as they were fairly similar on a mechanical basis.)

They are actually still around, but they've been rebuilt and are now in MOW service.
