Tom Beckett General Nice catch. These units ran all over, but mostly in the Chicago area. EMD used 462 as a test bed for various equipment under development, a real world R&D tool. They could have anything under the hood, so to speak, and were used in creating the 645 engine in its various forms at this time. I think later it was also used for the 710, which powered the SD 50, 60, and 70. 10/31/2015 12:37:31 AM
Bob Beaumont General Nice shot! Interesting having demonstrator marking in 1968. Do you know why? 5/25/2018 12:05:25 PM
