Here's the "maintenence" mentioned earlier....SD40-2 6379 provides the impetus for a SPENO rail grinder working eastward on track 2 at Bancroft, MA. on March 27, 1982. Several years later, the more modern, newer versions of the SPENO rail grinder trains would get their own locomotives in the form of a modified version of EMD's F40, with a non-turbocharged 16/645. These were unofficially referred to as "F38's".
