    The SD70M-2 replaced the SD70M model in EMD's catalog. With the declining popularity of DC-traction engines, only NS and CN own SD70M-2s.

    The SD70M-2 strongly resembles the SD70ACe, looking like a shortened SD90MAC-H II. Note the absence of large grilles behind the cab, unlike on the SD70ACe: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=159755
