Metra F40PH-2 #183, which was built in September 1989, wore the standard blue and red attire of Chicago's rail commuter agency for close to three decades. A recent large-scale rebuilding saw the commuter-hauling loco get several major technological improvements, including microprocessor controls and an EPA-regulated emissions system. The four-axle EMD also received a dynamic new look. The rework was performed by Progress Rail in Georgia and completed late in October, 2016. (Robby Gragg photo)
