New York Central "Pacemaker" SD90MAC

Image 1998 by David Thompson

Painted by Shane Dalaba

Painter's note: The new SD90MAC's were delivered to the New York Central in late June. The current order of 30 has been filled with numbers 3000-3029. NYC is expected to acquire an additional 30 to replace an already aging fleet of SD40-2's which have been running most intermodal trains. Other new units will also be delivered in a scheme very similar to this to help promote NYC's newest intermodal fleet. Other newer locomotives, such as the SD50's, SD60's, SD75's, Dash-8 CW's and Dash-9 CW's will be painted to the newer scheme. There is also talk of the NYC's purchasing 15 AC6000CW's, which would also be painted in this scheme, and be delivered in 2000.
