GMD Recollections - Basic Black

Norfolk Southern SD60 units 6656 and 6655 were being exercised on the GMD test track on December 03/1988.
By Peter Mumby.

Norfolk Southern purchased 151 SD60 locomotives new from the builder, specifically units 6550 through 6700.  Of these, 6651-6700 were assembled in London.  6651 - 6675 were built under order C472 in November and December of 1988.  Today's featured locomotives were a part of that particular subset.  In later years an additional 106 SD60, SD60I, and SD60M diesels of Conrail heritage would be added to the mix.
