Take photos of those SD70ACe's.

Fifty years from now they will be as rare as an ALCo now.

Well I contacted a friend of mine who works there and he said the employees were under the impression they were getting GE's. It's a wait and see thing now.

Not really a "wait and see thing", it was confirmed by the A&M chairman to Trains Magazine for its News Wire. The new units are indeed SD70ACe's and are former EMDX demo units #1201-1203. The units are currently being prepped at the Progress Rail shops in Mayfield,KY.
