  • Small plow
  • Dual Sinclair antennas
  • Front pilot mounted ditch lights
  • Lower mounted rear sand filler hatch
  • Non-operating front and rear red marker lights

Beginning in 1993, Conrail began to receive 75 SD60M's in 3 different orders from EMD. These units were built with red marker lights on each end for helper service and reverse movements, becoming a CR-specific spotting feature.

CSX FEATURES: 

  • "YN3" Scheme
  • Ex-CR
  • Small EMD plow
  • Front ditch lights
  • CSX-style GPS dome
  • K-5 horn

After the CR split in 1999, CSX acquired 30 ex-CR SD60M's. Around 2007, they were repainted into CSX's more simplified "YN3" scheme while retaining most of the CR-specific details. They operated until 2017 when their lease expired and they were sold off to a leasing company.

UP FEATURES: 

  • Large EMD plow
  • Front ditch lights
  • Nose headlights

Included in this run of UP SD60M's are both early and current versions. These locomotives were used in just about every service, hauling coal and fast intermodel, to drag freights and locals. As of a few years ago, a small batch were taken out of retirement, repainted and sent back out to work.

We are offering both as-delivered and current versions to satisfy UP modelers in different eras.

    PROTOTYPE SPECIFIC INFORMATION

    In 1984, EMD unveiled the first four SD60 demonstrator units. The SD60 was equipped with a 3,800 horsepower, 16 cylinder, turbocharged 710 engine. Five years later, EMD began offering the SD60 with the "safety" wide nose cab, thus creating the SD60M. Union Pacific was the first to acquire the SD60M followed by Burlington Northern, Soo Line, and Conrail. Conrail also ordered SD60I "isolated cab" versions. BN's SD60M's went to BNSF while Conrail's units were split between Norfolk Southern and CSX.
