KCS GP40 photo here
KCS dipped into the second-hand locomotive market in August 1982, for the acquisition of 19 GP40s. The four-axle EMDs had previously wore the orange and white of neighboring Illinois Central. An additional 30 Conrail GP40s were acquired during 1983 and 1984. The 787 was seen at Texarkana, TX on 13 November 1982. (Paul DeLuca photo)
