EMD responded by adding a steam generator compartment to the long hood end of their SD45. This required a longer frame and resulted in the creation of the SDP45. Three railroads originally purchased SDP45s Southern Pacific Great Northern and Erie Lackawanna. Over the decades the SDP45s were then acquired by other railroads through mergers leasing companies and rebuild programs.
