EMD GP60 is a 4-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between 1985 and 1994. The GP60 was EMD's first diesel that was classified as a third-generation locomotive. Hidden behind the electrical cabinet doors on the rear wall of the cab, the GP60 concealed a trio of microprocessors that monitored and managed a host of engine, cooling system and control functions. Power is provided by a 16-cylinder 710G3A diesel engine, which could produce 3,800 horsepower.
The newest type of four axle power in the Washington Northern fleet. This particular unit was given the "Operation Lifesaver" hearld when leaving the GM plant on April 14, 1993.
