Remarks & Notes 
Quebec North Shore & Labrador Railway's first purchase of second generation units was six GMD SD40's built in 1968. The railway hauls iron ore from Schefferville to Sept Isles, Quebec and has no rail connection with the outside world. So, cars and locomotives get to Sept Isles by ship. On a hot day in August, 1969 the stevedores at the Port of Montreal are taking a break after loading two new locomotives. Another two will follow.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service over several decades.
