Kansas City Southern's "Ghost" Locomotives
KCS SD40-2
During the first half of 1978, EMD's plant in McCook, IL delivered ten long-nose SD40-2s -- snoots. Five units were equipped as remote-control masters, the others as "slaves." The remotely controlled 682 was photographed on 30 June 1985 at Stilwell, OK. It and sister 683 were later re-#d 912 & 913 respectively and painted yellow to handle maintenance-of-way trains.
