Standard unit. (CAAL-9) These units hold the same place with me as do the SD70s. They smack of CSX. I'm starting to sound like the old editor of Rails Northeast, a PC nut who disliked CR but covered it anyway. These are classy units, but beyond my modeling era.

A nice overhead shot of one of the SD70MACs. I never realized that part of the cab hood was painted anti-skid black!

Interior shot of the upper control panel when the photo was brand new. Interesting how this panel has a fan, but the 80MACs don't. Scott Harris explained to me that this is because CSX ordered their 70MAC's without Air Conditioning, but with fans instead. Boy that was nice of them wasn't it? It was obviously not a Conrail pracice, but I guess they had to tailor these to CSX specs. So that is why the fan is found in the SD70's, but not in any other normal Conrail widebody.
