    The EMD SD80MAC was built in late 1995 and 1996 for Conrail only. With 5000 horsepower, it was EMD's most powerful single-engine diesel ever, and at over 80 feet long, the largest. It used the same isolated cab as the SD60I and SD70I, radial-steering trucks, and introduced massive 45-degree flared radiators. At the time, there was nothing else that could posibly be confused with it. Now, there are other similar-looking engines.

    SD80MACs when they were young:

    Rear views: Note the "notch" near the top. It contains the class lights, which are blanked on the NS engine. This is an important identifying feature distinguishing SD80MACs from SD9043MACs.
