February 24, 2020

Last year CSX bought 10 new EMD SD70ACe-T4 units, which the carrier classifies as ST70AH. They were initially confined to Florida’s Bone Valley operations. Recently they have been turned loose to run systemwide. In the past week two have led trains through Akron on the New Castle Subdivision. In the top image, CSX 8903 leads Q299 at Kent on Feb. 16. In the middle image No. 8906 leads Q015 at Wampum and Lowellville on Feb. 22.

November 15, 2016

Norfolk Southern has been testing Progress Rail’s EMD SD70ACe Tier 4 demonstration locomotives on its Winston-Salem District in Virginia and North Carolina.

NS logo 2Nos. 1607 and 1608 were recently moved from the facility in Muncie, Indiana, to Roanoke, Virginia and will operate on the route between Roanoke and Winston-Salem.

The demonstrators have a livery similar to that of Union Pacific and are similar to EMDX Nos. 1609 and 1610, which are still being tested on CSX.
