The entire class of Rio Grande GP35's was demoted to B-unit status in 1972 due to the FRA mandate requiring chemical retention toilets in all locomotives. Rather than upgrading the locomotives the Rio Grande chose to demote them. At the time of the demotion, cab sunshades, speed recorders and other cab equipment was removed from the GP35's. [73]
