Beginning in early 2010, NS 6653 entered Juniata shop for 240 units planned through 2019. In August 2010, two SD60s (6567 and 6576) were retired and ear-marked for the SD60E program. Mechanically, the original prime mover, a 16-cylinder 710G3 model remained, but it was thoroughly rebuilt to 710G3B specs and rerated to 4,000 horsepower. The original shaft-driven air compressor was replaced with a new motor-driven compressor. All-new electrical cabinets and wiring, coupled with EMD's EM2000 microprocessor controls, were installed, along with D99BTR traction motors. A new split-cooling system helps the SD60E meet Tier 0+ emissions requirements and reduce fuel consumption by an estimated 5 percent as compared to an older SD60 model. The SD60E's tractive effort is rated at 109,000 pounds - unrebuilt SD60s are rated at 96,320-100,000 pounds.
