    Default EMD Geeps

    Do any Class 1's own one of EMD's new (I guess) Geep? Do any railroads own these other than CEFX Leasing?

    I heard CSX placed an order for 30 GP20D's.

    I highly doubt it, I haven't heard anything on any of the CSX stuff I belong to.......the only new power I've heard of are those new fangled things called "SD70MACe's". I've already gave them the nickname "Mace Machines" :)

    "Mace" after the pronounciation of "MACe" at the end of the "SD70" and the fact that you felt like you've used mace on your eyes after you've seen it!!!-Jeffrey

    Huh, I coulda swore on a stack of TRAINS Magazines it was called the "SD70ACe", not the "SD70MACe". Well, whatever. Thats CSX's deal. I just called them "ACEs".

    Yeah they're calling them SD70ACes, but I don't get it. It is an M, so why not call it that?

    It's kinda like how CSX calls their SD70MACs "SD70ACs". M designating wide nose.....they are, so why not call them that?:)-Jeffrey

    so, if they used the sam epicture of both pages, whats the difference between them?!

    Well, on CEFX I see the 20D's have dynamics, and thr 15D's have none....

    Whats next, 30D and 35D? Or is EMD gonna quit altogether?

    What frames are these things built on? I wanna model one now.....
