A friend of mine said me that there is a rumor among the employees of ALL railroad (Brazil) that the company ordered second hand SD80 in the uSA market. Have you seen bunch of these locomotivess being moved to the port areas? The locomotives uses to come here by Houston port.

These are SD40-2's. The only SD80's are the SD80MAC's that CSX and NS got from CR. Some of the CSX ones where leased to Mexico earlier in the year.

There are no secondhand SD80MAC's available. There are 30 total units, 13 of which are operated by CSX and 17 operated by Norfolk Southern.

EMD is supposed to be working on an SD80ACe for Vale. Reports late last year or early this year had 10 such units on order.

This is a good news. We perceive that Vale is testing different models alog the years: SD70M, C44-9W, ES58ACi and now SD80ACe. Is it possible to confirm the production of SD80ACe to us?
