Atlas has just announced all new SD60E at the 2017 Trainfest show. The SD60E is the rebuilt version of the EMD SD60 for Norfolk Southern created at their Juniata Shops. These rebuilt units receive new electronics and updates the engine to the 710G3B (new stricter emissions compliant engine) rated at 4000 hp. The SD60E also utilizes a new NS-designed “Crescent” cab with a wide short hood, replacing the “spartan” cab.
The Atlas N scale version will be available in both Silver (non-sound) and Gold (ESU sound decoder equipped. No word yet on release timeframe. We’ll be stopping by the Atlas booth at Trainfest and should have more info in the next few days. Meanwhile the Atlas flyer is below:
