In 1984, EMD unveiled the first four SD60 demonstrator units. The SD60 was equipped with a 3,800 horsepower, 16 cylinder, turbocharged 710 engine. Five years later, EMD began offering the SD60 with the "safety" wide nose cab, thus creating the SD60M. Union Pacific was the first to acquire the SD60M followed by Burlington Northern, Soo Line, and Conrail. Conrail also ordered SD60I "isolated cab" versions. BN’s SD60M’s went to BNSF while Conrail’s units were split between Norfolk Southern and CSX
