Description

Ex-Missouri Pacific RR diesel-electric freight locomotive photographed somewhere between Washington and Chicago on 19 September 2014. This model has a wide nose and a large comfort cab (officially known as the "North American Safety Cab"), allowing crew members to ride more comfortably inside of the locomotive than the older standard cab designs.
The SD70M is equipped with D90TR DC traction motors and the 710G3B prime mover. These locomotives are capable of generating 109,000 lbf (480 kN) of continuous tractive effort.
