To support Webb Asset Management’s purchase of former Canadian Pacific trackage in Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, WAMX re-assigned units from its Wisconsin Southern division, replacing those locomotives with an acquisition of 10 ex-UP SD60Ms. With shared trackage rights to Chicago, the Wisconsin Southern was in need of PTC-equipped locomotives and these were pressed into service immediately after a quick re-number and patch job.

PROTOTYPE SPECIFIC INFORMATION

In 1984, EMD unveiled the first four SD60 demonstrator locomotives. The SD60 was equipped with a 3,800 horsepower, 16-cylinder, turbocharged 710G3A prime mover. Five years later, EMD began offering the SD60 with the wide nose “safety” cab with the infamous “Tri-Clops” 3-piece windshield, thus creating the SD60M. The term “Tri-clops” is a popular railfan nick name that refers to the original 3-window cab design. Union Pacific was the first road to order these new SD60M locomotives followed by Burlington Northern and SOO Line. BN’s SD60M locomotives went on to the merged BNSF while the SOO Line units went to Canadian Pacific. Some of the BNSF units found more mileage with Norfolk Southern and in lease service for CEFX.
