Saw the 1400 on Monday.  I believe it was headed to Taylor, WI for some abuse.   :knowitall:

It's the Swiss army knives of locomotives. I know what it really and it's just too cool

I count at least 4. (CSX, UP, KCS, BNSF) Possibly more.

That is one of two EMD GM10B demonstrator locomotives, Locos 1975 and 1976. Marketed as a replacement for the GG1 and for hi speed electric freight.

More info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMD_GM10B

I have drawings for this and the ACE 3000... Hmmm...
