N EMD SD70M CSX Flat Radiator #4691

Introduced in 1992, EMD’s SD70M was a 4000 horsepower locomotive that rode on EMD’s new steerable truck design, known as the HTCR-II radial truck. This new truck allowed the locomotive to transfer its power to the rails more efficiently, which in turn enabled two SD70 series locomotives to pull a train that would have taken three SD40-2s to pull. The pre-2002 versions of these engines had a flat radiator design instead of the flared radiator that is more commonly associated with modern engines. The CSX acquired many SD70M’s later in this unit’s life cycle, acquiring them from Norfolk Southern, Southern Pacific, and even taking possession of EMD’s demo units.

    Model Features:
  • Prototype details - Cab Headlight and Flat Radiator
  • Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels
  • Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted numberboards
  • DCC Friendly mechanism ready for drop-in decoder installation
  • $125.00
