Does anyone know what happened to the 9500-9503 SD60MACs after BN bought the 350 70MACs? I've always had an interest in these units.

The four units were sent back to EMD in 1997. Now one or two of them is coupled to a SD70ACe providing extra horsepower, and braking power at a EMD test track. All four still exist.

Still trying to figure out why UP continues to buy SD70M's instead of
SD70MAC's. Anybody have knowledge of why?

Good, solid, dependable power -- lower price. They've also gone back to the old reliable analog gauges/instruments -- same reasoning.

It's not the EMD Test Track, but the DOT test track in Pueblo, Colorado where all four SD60MACs reportedly reside.

Tahnks for the correction SSW9389.

The BN Logos on the cabs got ripped off and now have a 'Electro-Motive' blue banner on the sides. The nose logo still exists.
