The arrival of thirty new F40PHM-2s from EMD in late 1991 meant the days of E-units in regular daily service were coming to a close. In fact, by late 1992 / early 1993, the passenger-hauling locos with the bulldog nose were stricken from the roster. This late 2014 photo shows Metra F40PHM-2 #186 leading a westbound Metra "dinky."
