Heading out next week for Oregon for a long term lease. These GMD1’s are amazing pullers. With the electrical system & adhesion packages CN installed in them in the late 90’s. They will pull as many cars as a SW1500 all day.
Re-powered with a Tier 3 compliant Cummins QSK50 2,000hp power module and all new electronics. All other components are EMD standard for ease of maintenance. Additionally, all components have been completely remanufactured. It even has an AC unit!
This unit will bring you 80-90% reduction in NOx Emissions, 20-30% increase in tractive effort and adhesion, 90% decrease in lube oil consumption, and up to 20% decrease in fuel consumption over the older EMD engines in use.
This locomotive is also eligible for government DURA funding & grants to help with the majority of the purchase. Please call or email the office today and find out all we can do for you to put this on your railroad today!!
Another exciting endeavor under way, Our newest locomotive. The first time we have ever owned an SD60. It will be available within a month and will be ready for service immediately.
Also included are the cab and electrical box pictures as have been requested. Congrats to our longtime customer Central Montana Rail!! First unit has been working fabulously and they are extremely happy and amazed with the tractive effort provided by the new N-Force electrical system.
MP15DC #1360 and GMD1 #1415 are headed back to our yard finally. We will have some work to do to get them back up and running due to stolen parts and vandalism while waiting forever to be moved off their last assignment. But they should be ready to go in short order upon their return hopefully next week. Windows for the GMD1 are on order.
If you need good reliable power for a lease assignment or for sale give Pat or Ty a call at the office for more information and rates. 509-624-7207
