120307 0074 brian marsh740 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.

The T signifies that it is a Tunnel motor with a modified radiator intake to allow 'cool' running through the Sierra Nevada tunnels. And the "M" with a lighting rod through it meant that it was a master unit for radio controlled helpers, used in the Tehachapi mountains. 19th March 2005.55555
