  • The first four LLPX SD38-2s were leased around the time that the IAIS took over CRANDIC operations from Smith-Dows Yard? to Yocum Connection. They replaced gaggles of four-axle Iowa Interstate power needed to make the grades.
  • LLPX 2809 went to Mid-America Car in Kansas City, MO, to become IAIS 153, emerging on 21 May 2006. While being repainted, the units were equipped with SmartStart units, their remaining gyralites removed, and resulting gaps plated over.
