PROTOTYPE INFO...
SD-35 High & Low Nose

A heavy hauler from the mid-1960's, the SD-35 was used by many railroads in the US for service in the coal, refineries and chemical producing industries. Built by the Electro-Motive Division of the General Motors Corporation in 1964-1965, the SD-35 had a "boxy"" appearance originated by a short underframe.

Available in low nose and high nose versions, it was the first six-axle EMD diesel to have the angular carbody style. In addition, it can be identified from similar EMD diesels by the single small fan in between two large fans on top of the rear portion of the long hood. All SD-35's featured horns mounted on the roof as well as dynamic brakes, which was a revolutionary new feature to EMD in the 1960s.

SDP-35

With passenger service declining in the mid-1960s, EMD made some adjustments to the SD-35 model. The new SDP-35 was ready for service in 1965 with a steam generator suitable for passenger service or easily converted to freight service. The steam generator compartment was close to the rear of the unit. This change required modifications to the rear access steps and the standard fuel tank was divided into water and fuel compartments.
