I don't think Athearn made straight SD40-2's in SP. Here's an article that might clearup some confusion:http://espee.railfan.net/tunnel_motors.html (mid-way down the page, by Don Strack)

 
I could be wrong, but I think Athearn did offer an SD40-2 painted to represent SP's Olympic scheme SD40 but not in the standard scheme.  Speaking or RailPower/Athearn, any word yet on when Athearn is coming out with a straight SD40?

I know you have been inundated with questions, thankyou for you patience in answering them. I do have one though, SD90MAC oil capacity? Oil Type (if it mentions this) and the recommended service intervals for changing out the oil. I know the last one will be operating hours, but I've always been curious of this. Thanks!

as far as the sd40t-2, the Bessemer and Lake Erie has a fleet of the SP units. Rebuilt and given the sd40t-3 classification. If you like the tunnel motors you need to check these out!!!!! Big Bright and Orange. Awsome looking units. I think they had a total of 12 rebuilt for them by Wabtec, but hurry and check them out. CN now owns the B&LE, and its only a matter of time before our canuck friends wipe out another part of americana . Stay in Canada! Athearn is making a set of the tunnels, great models, i bought the B&LE 904, runs great and looks really good on the layout, those to are going fast and i guess there will only be one run of them so get your hand on a tunnel while you can!!!

If this is off topic, I apologise. This, however seemed a good place to continue my quest. I'm looking for information, drawings etc. on the GE U6b, two foot gauge engine. I know that several were exported to Africa.
 
Thank you,
Greg B.

I am looking for the build dates on the SW1400 series.  The loco info/spec book did not contain that model.  Thanks for your help!

I'm pretty sure those are rebuilt SD45T-2s. http://railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=149112 Note the three panels at the rear (with white spots).

I believe those were ICG rebuilds, not factory models.

To add to what Triplex said, ICG did rebuild a number of switchers. Their #1300-1311 were called SW1300 to reflect the increase to 1300HP. They also made 1300B-1302B which were 1300HP calf units. They also made 82 SW14 units, #1400-1481. These were rebuilt switchers but they did not get an upgrade in HP. They were 1200HP units but they stood out because the cabs were built with an angled roof (sort of CF7ish).  The 1300 series units were done in the 1971-1975 time frame.  The 1400 series was done in the 1978-1981 time frame. I do not recall ICG building a "SW1400".  BTW, Diesel Locomotive Rosters, the 1982 issue by McDonald and Diesel Spotter's Guide Update by Pinkepank & Marre helped with this info.

I think I understand, but please correct me if not.  Here goes: the SW1400 is really a rebuilt SW1200 with an angled nose, same hp.  There is no record of ICG building them, but there is record that ICG built a total of 82 SW14's.  The build dates for SW1400 series was 1978 - 1982, but the builder is unknown(?).   Don't mean to beat a dead horse, but you guys know way more than me!   Thanks!

In the "new" Extra 2200 South (after to move to Blaine WA) there was a roster series on the IC/ICG rebuilding program (GP8, GP10, SD20, SW14 etc) that included the rebuild dates.  I think back issues are available on their web site.

I've seen the designations SW13 and SW1300 used interchangeably.

Maybe the confusion comes from the numbering - SW13's were numbered in the 1300 series and SW14's were numbered in the 1400 series.

You were right - my confusion was coming from SW14 vs. SW1400.  Thank you CHESSIEMIKE, aXion, Triplex and RC for your resourcefulness and patience- you have all been very helpful.  Hopefully, my next question will be more interesting (and challenging).  Have a great rest of the week!

Here are some sites I use for diesel locomotive statistics. (Note that there are some disrepancies between sources.)
http://www.thedieselshop.us/INDEXMOD.html Diesels from major manufacturers (note: lacks EMD page), lists every locomotive by owner. Up to date.
http://membrane.com/~elmer/rail/product.html Production totals from most manufacturers, to 1999.
http://www.trainweb.org/emdloco/modelsearch.htm Every EMD locomotive, includes original owners. Up to date.
http://www.trainweb.org/stlrailfanning/GEprostat.htm GE production totals, to 1989.
http://www.calclassic.com/alco/century.htm All Alco Century-series, with original owners and sometimes dispositions.
http://www.trainweb.org/greengoats/index.html Railpower Green Goats, includes owners. Up to date.
