CSX Receives New Tier 4 Locomotives

CSX has begun taking delivery of 10 new SD70Ace-T4 locomotives built by Progress Rail.

The EPA Tier 4 compliant units were built in Muncie, Indiana, and moved from there to Cincinnati over Norfolk Southern rails to be interchanged with CSX.

From Cincinnati the units will be moved to Waycross, Georgia, for setup.

Once that is finished, they are expected to be assigned to trains carrying phosphate in the Bone Valley region of Florida, Trains magazine reported.

The new units will carry roster numbers 8900-8909 and be designated as ST70AH units.

The last of the order, No. 8909, is expected to be released this week.

The units are the first new EMD locomotives purchased by CSX since 2004 when it acquired 20 SD70ACe units.
