Delivered in 1977, ATSF 3669-3682 were the first Phase II GP39-2s constructed by EMD. The most prominent spotting feature of these units is the 3 foot long blank space behind the cab, due to the engine compartment being moved rearwards. They also featured the new 88" nose that came into use at this time. Standard Santa Fe roof equipment included an air conditioner, large antenna ground plane over the dust bin, and a Prime Stratolite beacon. The units could be found working secondary assignments on the eastern half of the Santa Fe until the mid 80s, at which time they began to wander west as part of almost any train, with almost any other type of power.
