All Time Locomotive Roster

The Chicago Central's motive power roster consisted entirely of used four-axle locomotives. Most of which were acquired from the Illinois Central Gulf as part of the line's purchase of the Iowa Division. While many locomotives were repainted into their attractive red scheme, most of the locomotives remained in their original IC or ICG paint schemes. While the CC did lease some six-axle locomotives, in the form of VMV SDP45s, the company's managers decided to stick with the four-axle locomotives for fleet versatility. Besides leasing the SDP45s from VMV, the CC also leased GP38-2s & GP38s from Helm and GP40s from Conrail.
