U Boats with EMD trucks

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

SAL's U30B's were delivered with EMD trucks from wrecked and retired GP-9's, according to the book, "Seaboard Motive Power". However, ACL's U30B's also had EMD trucks, as did all of SCL's U33B's and U36B's, and a lot of their U18B's. Did all of these EMD trucks come from EMD trade-in's or wrecked units? Or were EMD trucks specified by SCL for these units?

Most were from F Unit trade-in's.
