Stored Power
Title:  Stored Power
Description:  By the time this photo was taken Amtrak had retired most of its E and F units, and stored many of its remaining older locomotives. Here are six of the surviving older engines stored at the New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal coach yard: E8Am 436, E9A 419, FP7A's 493 and 492, and E8A's 368 and 353. The 436 was built in May 1952 as Illinois Central 4029, and was upgraded by the IC into E10 2021 in February 1969. Amtrak bought it in February 1973, and it was the only IC unit purchased by Amtrak. The 419 was built in December 1963 as Union Pacific 419, and it had the distinction of being the last E-unit ever constructed. Both of these units were scrapped at NOUPT by Precision National Corp. in 1982.

The 493 and 492 were two of 14 FP7's acquired from the Southern Pacific, and the last two in existence. Originally SP 6454 and 6453, they became Amtrak 117 and 116 in July 1972, were renumbered 377 and 376 in April 1976, and renumbered to 493 and 492 in July 1977. Both were retired in May 1980 and sold to Precision National Corp. for scrap. E8A 368 was built in August 1950 as UP 929. It was subsequently Amtrak 326, 438, 368 and 469 before being retired in June 1981 and sold to PNC. E8A 353 was built in October 1953 as Baltimore & Ohio 26A and was renumbered B&O 1447 in 1957. It wore Amtrak numbers 203, 353 and 467 before being retired.
