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?

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

I just uploaded a ton of CW60AC photos here: Viewing Album: CSX CW60AC's - Railroad Picture Archives.NET
