SD90MAC locomotives represent Electo-Motive's latest technology on the rails. They feature the RADIALAC traction system, WhisperCab, Integrated Cab Electronics, Microprocessor Air Brake, 4,300 or 6,000 horsepower diesels, and electronic fuel controls.
As Tim-the-Toolman-Taylor would say:  "80 feet of 6,000 raw horsepower producing 200,000 pounds of Tractive Effort through 38 percent dispatchable adhesion... Argh... Argh... Argh !"
