Subject: Re: SD45's

I'm not exactly sure when the SD45's dis-
appeared. I can probably look at the
assignment book at the archives and give you
an idea. After N&W service, some were sold
to Wisconsin Central and they'd occasionally
get back to the N&W.

Although I was assigned to the Mechanical
Department, my mechanical knowledge was
(and is) really limited. I only gapped the spark
plugs of the diesel engines coming off overhaul.
My understanding is that the downfall of the
SD45's came because their long crankshafts
began to warp.
