Built by General Electric Transportation Systems in August 1995 and numbered 704. This series of locomotives (a total of 18 would be built) were built to replace the EMD FL9's. These "Dual-Mode" units were built to operate on diesel power above-ground and on third-rail electric power when in the tunnels going into New York's Penn Station. With funding provided by the State of New York, select units have been repainted into Phase III with a special "Empire Service" emblem on each side. 704 was the first unit to receive this paint scheme.
