All three of the major roads included in the Chessie System (B&O, C&O, and WM) did roster EMD's
SD40 diesel locomotive. The 1970s Chessie System SD40 group included 8 examples from the Baltimore & Ohio; 63 from the C&O;
and a dozen SD40s from the Western Maryland. Chessie numbering put the SD40 model in the 7500-series. Below is an image
from the Chessie Photo Archive of SD40 #7500 wearing Chessie System paint. You may click on it to view more examples and
