    The SD70ACe replaced the SD70MAC model in EMD's catalog.

    With its angular cab and flared radiators, it resembles an SD90MAC-H II. However, it is not as long overall. Observe the two grilles behind the cab, one above the other. Also observe the flared radiators: two main sections each divided in half. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=159496

    SD70ACes have received many paint schemes:

    SD70ACes have also been built for BHP Billiton Iron Ore in Australia. These units have double handrails: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=159983
