EMD SD60

The EMD SD60 is a 3,800 horsepower (2.8 MW) 6-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division. Intended for heavy-duty drag freight or medium-speed freight service, it was introduced in 1984, and production of SD60 variants ran until 1995.

Washington Northern ordered a fleet of 18 SD60s from EMD in 1987 after some impressive tests with demo units in 1986. 6222 is one of 16 still in active duty on the WN, and can be seen running through the tideflats district.
