The SD80MAC series was introduced by EMD in late 1995. Conrail was the first railroad to receive the SD80MAC in early 1996, and as it would turn out, Conrail would be the only original buyer of this locomotive, even purchasing both of the demonstrator units. CSX and Norfolk Southern have since acquired these units.
Today, many of these locomotives are still in service with CSX, having acquired the modern and striking “Dark Future” paint scheme that all new CSX locomotives now wear.
Locomotive feature directional Golden White LED headlights and ditch lights.
Powerful five pole motor with brass flywheels and all-wheel electrical pickup from scale 42" blackened metal wheels.
Equipped with ESU-Loksound Select DCC and Sound decoders along with all handrail and grab iron detail parts by our staff at Kato USA. As these units are built-to-order, please allow and additional 1-2 weeks from the date of order for them to be prepared for billing and shipment.
