Description
The EMD SD50 was introduced in May 1981 as part of EMD's 50 Series and built until 1986. The locomotive was released as another attempt to provided a higher-horsepower model to keep pace with General Electric's increasing competition and its C36-7 model, that offered more power than the SD40-2. Unfortunately, EMD rushed the SD50 into production and it not only suffered mechanical problems but also did irreparable damage to the company's reputation as a respectable locomotive builder. Interestingly, after these issues were corrected the locomotive did prove to be quite reliable and today many remain in use on Class I systems.
