CHICAGO – The first new EMD SD30C-ECO locomotives are en route to Canadian Pacific. Nos. 5003 and 5009 arrived in Chicago last night on Canadian National train M335. CN will deliver the locomotives to the Twin Cities for interchange to CP.

CP has ordered 20 remanufactured locomotives from EMD, all of which are being constructed at Progress Rail’s Mayfield, Ky., plant. The 20 locomotives will be assigned to St. Paul, Minn., for service and carry road numbers Nos. 5000-5019. This was part of a larger order for 350 such locomotives, but the order has been scaled back drastically due to management changes at the company.

The locomotives are part of EMDs ECO line of repowered locomotives and feature a 12-710 prime mover producing 3000 hp and Tier 0 emissions.
