By 1954 railroads were buying diesels as fast as EMD could build them, and customer demand for more powerful units carried over into the switcher market as well. With the introduction of the new 567C prime mover that year, EMD rolled out its new 1200-horsepower SW9/1200 model which shared the same basic body (with minor variations) and power rating with its predecessor, the SW9 (which had a 567B prime mover). SW9/1200s were produced through 1966 when earlier GPs began taking over yard chores, but these later SW models lead long lives with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after "retirement" by the original owners.
While originally designed to house a 6000hp engine, technical difficulties resulted in many SD90MAC's being equipped with a 4300hp engine instead, which gave them the designation SD90/43MAC. The locomotives were reliable and effective enough with these engines that though the option to upgrade was given, most locomotives kept the as-shipped 4300hp AC traction engine. Today, the Indiana Rail Road operates 14 SD90/43MACs leased from CEFX, using them to primarily pull coal trains from Indiana mines to power plants across the state.
