PROTOTYPE INFO:


By the early 1960s the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) was at a big disadvantage.
Their 567 engine, in use for over 20 years, had reached its peak at 2,500
horsepower in a turbocharged 16-cylinder version. EMD released a new 645 engine
in 1966. The most powerful locomotive using this series of engine was the SD45,
powered by a 20-cylinder turbocharged 645E engine producing 3600 horsepower. EMD
then offered the V20 645E engine in the SDP45 in a standard hood configuration
and longer frame to occomodate the steam generator needed for passenger service.
The EMD SDP45 was a good passenger locomotive, but to the Santa Fe Railway it
did not look the part. EMD therefore designed a lightweight cowl body to cover
the locomotive, though it did not, as in earlier cab units, provide any
structural strength, which remained in the frame. The cowl provided sleeker
looks, better aerodynamics at speed, and allowed the crew to enter the engine
compartment en route for diagnostics and maintenance. After sponsoring the
development of the FP45 passenger locomotive, the Santa Fe requested a similar
freight locomotive from Electro-Motive. Where the FP45 was an SDP45 wrapped in a
full-width Cowl carbody, the new F45 was essentially an SD45 given the same
treatment.


Where the Santa Fe requested a full-width carbody for aesthetics, the Great
Northern saw an opportunity to protect crews from the dangers of winter
operation in northern climates.
