EMD 16-645D3A T Ed2 N XL L M4

BN Rebuilt both GP35 and GP30 locomotives into GP39Vs during a major rebuild series. Many of these locomotives were rebuilt involving both MK and VMV. The GP39V retained it's 567 prime mover and turbos but was fitted with 645 Power assemblies. The electrical systems were also upgraded to Dash-2 standards. This was considered a successful program and many are still in use today by BNSF and a few shortlines.

EMD 12-567C 2EXH NT N XL L M4

The SW1200 was the third model of 1200 hp SW series switchers built by EMD. It was a successor to the SW7 and SW9. Compared to its direct predecessor, the SW9, the SW1200 differed in that it used the improved and more reliable 567C engine, compared to the SW9's 567B engine. Late SW1200s built in 1966 were instead built with the 567E 12-cylinder engine. Most of the locomotive's external features were unchanged from the SW9, making distinguishing between the two models difficult.[1]

EMD 12-645E 2EXH NT Ed3 N XL L M4

The EMD 645 family of diesel engines were designed and manufactured by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors. The 645 series was an evolution of the earlier 567 series and a precursor to the later 710 series. The 645 series engines entered production in 1965. All 645 engines utilize forced induction, with either a Roots blower or a turbocharger. The 645 series has a maximum engine speed of between 900 and 950 revolutions per minute (rpm), an increase over the 800 to 900 rpm maximum more…

ALCO 6-539T Ed2 N XL L M4

The ALCO 539 engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that ALCO's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMC were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

The 539T was equipped with the Buchi turbocharger, being made under license by the Elliott Manufacturing Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania. The first 539T engines were used in S-2 switchers and DL-105 passenger more…

EMD 16-645D3A T N XL L M4

Between 1981 and 1983 Chessie rebuilt 67 EMD GP30 locomotives.
These were B&O and C&O GP30 units that went through Chessie's rebuilding program at both the Huntington and Cumberland shops. After rebuilding Chessie did not renumber the units, but CSX decided to give them their own number series once they took ownership.

GP-30Ms were internally rewired with some modular components similar to Dash 2 units. They also recieved new IDAC wheel slip control, D77 traction motors, and cab heaters. The more…
