General Notes:

a. C&NW 6622-6643 built as Southern Railway (SOU) SD24s, with high short hoods. Southern retired and sold 41 SD24s to Precision National Corp. in January 1978. PNC leased the units (lettered as PNC 6300s and still in Southern Railway black paint) to Milwaukee Road and later to BN. PNC had the Southern units rebuilt (by Milwaukee Road and Morrison Knudsen) during mid and late 1979 as 1,800 horsepower, non-turbocharged units.(previous SOU information changed from that previously shown, including data printed in the Withers book.)
b. C&NW 6644-6647 built as Union Pacific SD24s, with low short hoods. The Union Pacific SD24s were sold to PNC in November 1977 as part of the sale of 90 UP units. The UP SD24s were rebuilt to 1,800 horsepower, without turbochargers, by Morrison Knudsen in April 1980.
c. C&NW first leased 25 units (of the original 53 units in PNC 1800 class), beginning in late November 1980, and bought 26 units from PNC on 31 March 1982. PNC called the units SD10s, C&NW calls them SD18Rs. C&NW began painting the units in the then-current "Zito" yellow scheme in early August 1982.
d. C&NW 6622-6643 have EMD order number 5606; C&NW 6644-6647 have EMD order number 5602.
e. Not equipped with dynamic braking. All units equipped with dynamic braking when built; removed at time of rebuild for PNC; units retain original carbody dynamic braking hatch, with openings blanked over.
