Description
The mid-1990s were an era of large competition between EMD and General Electric, with both builders trying to outsell each other in a high horsepower race.Unfortunately, this meant that proper development time was not given, leading to neither the SD90MAC nor the AC6000CW being highly reliable models. Both locomotives were plagued with intense reliability issues, which lead to the production of intermediate variants, featuring a more reliable but less powerful prime mover. These so-called convertibles were planned to be rebuild with 6000hp engines as soon as they were available, which ultimately never happened.
Total production of the model topped at 478 units, with the majority of 410 locomotives utilizing EMDs 4300hp 710G3B prime mover instead of the 6000hp 265H engine. EMD received orders from both the Union Pacific and Canadian Pacific for its SD90 model, with the latter also leasing 40 of them from CEFX. Today, only the SD9043MAC convertibles remain in service, with their 6000hp counterparts either being retired and scrapped or returned after their leases expired.
