Check out David Davies and Geogre Hamlin's round of uploads tonight consisting of numerous very neat SD80MAC shots!

Our hits are rising by the day. We feel as more people get wind of this website they will continue to rise.

Also, I like your idea of posting link to TO...this really has helped our hit counts too!

Here's a question to the super-rivet counters that are always busting my chops about the differences between SD60M's and SD60I's -

Why are they called SD80MAC's? Technically, these units are SD80IAC's.

Just a thought to ponder.

3 reasons:

One, there was no non-isolated cab version offered, so "M" wasn't taken already.

Two, "MAC" is more fun to pronounce than "IAC"

Three, Conrail was the only ones to buy and that's what they (with EMD's assent) decided to call them.

As capricious as this sounds, it's better than EMD's "logic" to rename their GP22 a GP30 (because 30 is more than the 25 in U25B!)

SD80MACs drive me crazy cuz of the electric handbrakes which never work. Which means you either have to crank the handbrake on manually (which is sooo much more difficult than a conventional handbrake) or chock the wheels (which is difficult, just cuz its hard to find wheel chocks when you need em).
