    Is CSX repowering their CW60AC's with the GEVO-16 motors?
    I have just seen intermettent reports on this.
    Where can I find out more information?
    Unit numbers, actual engine used, dates of repower, etc...

    Thanks for any information in advance!

    From what I understand, They've only done a few of them.

    Trains "Locomotive 2009" mag. pg.18 "All 117 units are trading in their HDL's for new 6000-hp Evolution Series GEVO-16 engines and the latest control systems".

    Looks like 600-602 got FDL engines and 603-699,5000-5016 got the GEVO-16. Since 600-602 were the preproduction units it looks like GE is not converting those.

    I remember about 5+ years ago, many of the CW60's were derated to "CW44-6's". Anyone else remember that?

    That was a software change to the CW-60's that was later changed back to 6K output. It is amazing what computers can do with fuel mapping and adjusting horsepower output.

    Well I am just glad that they're still around. I like the "covered rear porch" that the huge radiators make. :rolleyes:
