NS SD60Es ditchlights VS AC44C6Ms ditchlights
Posted by NSTrains on Thursday, June 29, 2023 7:47 PM

why does NS SD60Es ditchlights flash slower than the new AC44C6Ms

I have never figured out why the did this and some other locomotives have the same as the SD60E.

Probably a different supplier of the flashing mechanism.  Watch turn signals for vehicles on the highway - they all have different flash rates determined by the specific used by each vehicle.

Never too old to have a happy childhood!
