PROTOTYPE INFO:

The SD45-2 was an initial success; it was a complete improvement or upgrade as part of EMDs Dash 2 line; it had little to almost absolutely no flaws during the early stages of production and during the models official introduction. It was both popular and compatible with the original SD45 as well, with its large 20-cylinder engine. The SD45-2 lasted somewhat longer than most SD45 units on various owners rosters.
