Athearn Genesis: SD90MAC Locomotives
Presenting EMD’s 6,000HP 6-axle diesel in a whole new level of authenticity. During the mid-1990’s, the horsepower race was in full swing between General Electric and GM’s Electro-Motive Division. Starting in 1995, EMD revived the 20 cylinder engine design, last seen in the SD45, and introduced the 5,000HP SD80MAC. GE soon responded with the 6,000HP 7HDL prime mover in their AC6000CW locomotive. EMD answered back with the GM16V265H 4-stroke diesel engine with a similar 6,000HP output. Thus, the SD90MAC-H was born. Athearn is pleased to announce the Phase II variation of the SD90MAC-H. A must have addition to your model railroad.
