Representing their as-delivered appearance, these SD70s were built for the NS by GMDD in London, Ontario, in 1993/94. With most railroads opting for the wide-nosed safety cab for their new locomotives at this time, these NS units are unique with their standard EMD Spartan Cab-making them look much like the SD60s before. However, they have several features that set them apart, such as the Integrated Cab Electronics (ICE) bulge on the fireman's side of the nose, and HTCR radial trucks. Additionally, NS fitted them spare knuckle baskets on the walkway and dual fuel sight glasses. They were a common sight pulling intermodal and unit trains, in multiple with other NS and/or Conrail power.
