Pretty much a complete rebuild, much like the NS SD40E rebuild program. The CSX units incorporate a Q-Tron microcpressor package which brings the units to DASH 3 standards (NS is using the EMD EM2000 microprocessor). The units are rated at 3000hp. CSX #8536 is the first such rebuild and last check showed it to still be at the Huntington Shops.
