Detailed Information MRL 4404 NOTES In late 2020 MRL unveiled #4404 painted in a striking paint scheme that commemorates essential workers across the world. Due to the timing of the real-life unveil there wasn’t enough time to finalize the artwork before this product announcement. MRL’s First Responder locomotive is being released to honor essential workers.

Each model is powered by a 16-cylinder 4300-horsepower diesel engine. On the SD70M-2 the prime mover drives an alternator and produces AC current that is rectified to DC current which powers the traction motors. On the SD70ACe the DC current is then “chopped” back into AC to power the traction motors.
