Default Curious: EMDX scheme

Does anybody have information regarding this rare EMDX paint scheme? This is the only pic I have found in the database. I am curious of the time period used, and it's significance. Thanks!

(I had to crop and reduce the pic to save file attatchment space)

BN bought 3 SD60s in November of 1985 and numbered them 8300-8302.They were all sold to EMD and kept the same number,they were later sold to CSX and renumbered 8787-8789.

I've always wondered what happened to those BN SD60's.

Thanks for the info.

The EMD scheme looked better than the orange on the BN!

This isn't all that rare a paint scheme... EMD used it on their SD70M demonstrators and SD70M lease units (though some of the leasers just got dip maroon). Other than the SD60s, I don't know of any other EMDX units painted in this scheme, and EMD Leasing became part of LLPX along with GATX Leasing around that time. (Just from what I remember... can't guarantee accuracy! )
