EMD® Delivers Three New Locomotives

September 19, 2013--LAGRANGE, Ill. – Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD) recently delivered three SD70ACe demonstrator locomotives to the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad (A&M), representing the first AC traction locomotives for the independent, Class III railroad. 

A&M operates 139 miles from Fort Smith, Ark., to Monett, Mo., and interchanges with BNSF, Union Pacific and Kansas City Southern Class I railroads. The SD70ACe locomotives are certified for EPA Tier 3 emissions standards, and features include radial trucks and distributed power, in addition to AC traction.

The railroad selected EMD to supply its new locomotives based on the demonstrated performance of the SD70ACe. “To take advantage of AC traction on our mountainous route, we determined the rugged design of the SD70ACe would allow A&M to maintain high fleet availability at low cost. The SD70ACe locomotive is ideal for our operations and will enable A&M to retire several older locomotives, while drastically increasing our hauling capability and efficiency.” said A&M’s Chairman Reilly McCarren.

The 4,300 traction horsepower SD70ACe locomotive integrates EMD’s highly reliable and fuel-efficient 16-cylinder 710 engine, EM2000 microprocessor control system and AC traction. EMD launched the model in 2005 for freight applications in North America and around the world.

“We’re excited to provide the first AC locomotives to be introduced into A&M’s fleet,” said Billy Ainsworth, Progress Rail and EMD Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate the confidence A&M has in EMD and look forward to providing the highest quality locomotives and services to support their operations and the lowest total cost of ownership.”

The locomotives, EMD road numbers 1201-1203, were delivered to A&M from Progress Rail’s Mayfield, Ky., facility. EMD 1201 made its debut at the MINExpo Show in Las Vegas, Nev., last September, painted in Caterpillar® yellow. Modifications at the Mayfield shop included a new, modern paint design reflecting A&M’s corporate colors and renumbering to A&M road numbers 70-72.

Introduced in February 1952 and produced through November 1953, the SD7 was the 1500HP six axle big brother to the GP7. Riding on six axles, three-motor trucks, they were designed to offer more starting tractive effort in "road" service than the GP7. EMDs introduction of an A1A freight locomotive led them to design the SD7 from the ground up. In appearance, they are very similar to the GP7 only with a longer hood. The radiators are grouped together at the end of the long hood and not separated as was seen on the GP7. The grill assembly protrudes from the side of the hood whereas with the GP7 the grills are fit flush with the hood. As built, the SD7 very closely resembles the SD9 with the visual spotting features being the boarding steps and a variation of the classification lights. The SD7 (for Special Duty) was a massive locomotive at 60 feet 8 inches from coupler to coupler and weighing 360,000 pounds. It was powered by the same reliable 1500HP 567B V-16 two-cycle diesel engine as the GP7 and F7.

With a maximum speed range between 55 and 89 miles per hour, depending on the gearing ratio selected, and a tractive force of 90,000 pounds, the SD series was here to stay. With the SD7, EMD introduced the "lightweight" Flexicoil truck which enabled these locomotives to be used on branchlines as well as for road service. These trucks were so smooth that the SD7 was compared to "riding in a luxury car." With the advent of 1954, EMD made a conservative marketing push against the competition with the announcement of their "Nine Line" series. This consisted of the introduction of new locomotive model numbers, the SW9/1200, the F9A/B, the GP9, and the SD9.
