MH 88

According to good sources, including Strapac's fantastic SP Compendium series, MH 88 was built in September 1959 by EMD as a model GP9, builders number 5608-18, SP 5889, SP Class DF-616. In 1965 it was renumbered to SP 3725 SP Class EF418-9.
This locomotive was upgraded in January 1978 emerging as SP 3885 SP Class EF418R-5.
This locomotive was retired in December 1988 and sold to Chrome Crankshaft becoming MH 88 soon thereafter.
