EMD SD-18

EMD SD-18
What a locomotive! This locomotive type is one of the best blends of non-turbocarged, medium horsepower, 6 axle motive power around. Simple electrically, extremely durable and can stand up in the toughest enviroments. Fantastic for use in road switching, low-speed line hauling or knock down, drag out pulling. Also amazing in switching applications where a light footprint must compliment low-speed lugging without the higher fuel consumption.
