|During the 60s and 70s, the race was on among locomotive manufacturers to develop more powerful locomotives for long-haul freight service. Among EMD‘s entrants into the fray was the “special duty SD-45, a 3600-horsepower prime mover that went on to serve virtually every major railroad. With a V-20 engine and six-axle trucks for superior tractive effort, the SD-45 embodied the latest and greatest technological advances of its day. Following EMD‘s lead in the pursuit of cutting-edge technology, we‘re proud to offer this Spectrum locomotive.|
