    PROTOTYPE SPECIFIC INFORMATION

    The SD45-2 was an initial success; it was a complete improvement or upgrade as part of EMD's "Dash 2" line; it had little to almost absolutely no flaws during the early stages of production and during the model's official introduction. It was both popular and compatible with the original SD45 as well, with its large 20-cylinder engine. The SD45-2 lasted somewhat longer than most SD45 units on various owners' rosters.
