The high hood N&W SD40-2's *were* setup with dual control stands and the
long hood designated as the front. The only N&W SD40-2's setup for
short hood forward operation were the units in the last order, Nos.
6189-6207, which were also the only N&W SD40-2's setup with single
control. All of the other low short hood SD40-2's were equipped with a
bi-directional control stand with the long hood designated as the front.
