hi scott ;
yeah i am glad to know about the railroad stuff and i work on quite few diffrent locos both ge and emd's and i allreay ran into old alco before and i drove the sd45 that is a nice one but going to be gone very fast due the manatice cost getting too high and fuel comupstion is too much for 3800 hp engine anyway ( it have 20-645 engine in it) and i will try to post my picture in it if i rember where i put my photo is
3 years ago i did use the sd 60 loco for electric generator duty for short while ( 2 days running time ) it crank over 3.5 MEGAWATTS and that is alot of juice at 480 volts the engine was running at 720 rpm but can crank up to 900 rpm but the hz will be off the bat it have 10 pole alternator init .
