Detailed Information



Inherited from the BN, the BNSF SD60Ms are a colorful & diverse group of locomotives. Representing units as they appear in service today, Athearn Genesis recreates the prototype variations, with each road number featuring unique decoration and/or patching & fading. Although bumped from primary assignments, these units still fill a vital role by powering secondary trains and handling heavy switch & transfer jobs.

Additionally, we are featuring a re-release of BNSF 9297, also known as “The Great Pumpkin.” This specially painted unit featured different schemes on each side, and was used to help decide the future of the railroad’s image.

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.
