120307 0074 brian marsh647 viewsThe first BHP Billiton Progress Rail built SD70ACe unit at Muncie USA. Note the lack of nose grab irons, the unit also has two new EMD type roof mounted antennas, a larger antenna at the rear, no grabs on the rear, no grabs behind the inverter area and has additional access openings in the side railing, just a few details of note. Window protectors have not yet been installed and step well guards will be installed in Australia.
