In 1991-92, NJ Transit sent its ex-CNJ GP40PH units out for rebuilding. The units were rebuilt as GP40PH-2 locomotives and, with the exception of 4101, renumbered out of order. At this time, the units were restricted on the Newark Division and primarily kept to the Hoboken Division. By 1999, the units were often used on the Pascack Valley Line service, as they were the only units equipped with the Speed Enforcement System equipment needed on the line. They are now found mainly on the Hoboken Division. New Jersey Transit would later order two more sets of GP40PH-2 units; these units were rebuilt from former freight GP40 units, not from GP40P units as the first order has been. (Wikipedia) Built as AWP 7xx (GP40)
