Surviving SD60s

In 1985 Conrail bought the three EMD demonstrators from EMD, and later went back to the well 4 years later, in 1989, for another 25 standard cab units. The demonstrators were numbered 6840, 6841, and 6842, while the later order was numbered from 6843 through 6867.

In 1999, the fleet was divided between Norfolk Southern and CSX. Those assigned to NS were renumbered into the 6701 - 6716 series, while CSX allocated units became 8710 - 8721.

I took this picture NS 6703 (a former CR SD60, sorry I'm not up on all the unit number conversions) at UP's Bailey Yard in North Platte, NE on 9/14/2008. It is seen here in a lash-up just released from the locomotive servicing facility and heading to the east end of the yard. I assume that meant it was going to be put on a train heading east so the locomotive could be re-delivered to NS at Kansas City.
