Norfolk Southern Juniata Locomotive Shop - Photo Tour

Photos taken at Employee Appreciation Day event 09/05/2016

Photo Page 8 - SD70ACU Rebuilds - SD70ACU cab and widenose awaiting installation


A new SD70ACU widenose end and cab await installation in the Smith Shop.

The new EMD SD70ACe-style cab and nose are specifically designed by EMD to fit the SD90MAC frame
and meet the latest FRA crashworthiness standards. The new cab includes an AAR-style control stand
(rather than the desktop controls of the SD90MAC), fits to the new electrical cabinet, and is isolated from
the frame (with a gasket) to reduce noise and vibration inside during operation. As can be seen in the
photos, the cabs arrive from EMD pre-wired and with many components already installed, ready to be
mounted to the locomotive. Other components (such as the radio, computer screens, air brake valves,
etc.) are installed after the cab has been applied to the locomotive.
