Description

Introduced in the mid-1980s, the SD60 and its four-axle sister, the GP60, were the first EMD diesels to incorporate computer technology and onboard diagnostics to aid the engineer. Under the hood was a 16-cylinder model 710 prime mover rated at 3800 horsepower. In January 1989, the Union Pacific Railroad accepted the initial order of SD60M's, featuring GM's version of the North American Safety Cab. The wide-nosed cab was relatively new to American rails but had been popular for some years with Canadian crews, who found it particularly cozy in the winter. The Safety Cab underwent several changes in appearance over the years, with the transition from a three-piece windshield to a two-piece model one of the most obvious. Other upgrades included the addition of front number boards above the windshield and window glass in the nose-mounted cab access door. EMD's SD50 diesel, introduced in 1980, had engine problems that led to the introduction of the SD60 just four years later. The SD50's model 645 prime mover was working so close to its limitations that the motor required a major overhaul every two years - twice as often as the motor in the previous SD-40 and SD40-2 locomotives. Responding to customer complaints, EMD developed the stronger, more reliable model 710 prime mover introduced in the SD60 diesel.
