In May 1994, the American rail freight company Conrail ordered 30 diesel-electric locomotives of the type SD 80 MAC with 5,000 HP from EMD and Siemens. Although this order called for a completely new design, reliable elements of the SD 70 MAC were adopted and refined. The SD 80 MAC locomotives are being used for heavy freight duty in the Northeastern United States.
