EMD 710 Engine export sales

  jmt Deputy Commissioner

There have been posts in the past deriding the 710, and questioning its ongoing viability

I guess that as long as the developing and third world have lightweight rail, and political classes not intent on trashing their economies in the name of Global Warming like ours, then there will be an ongoing demand for a lightweight medium speed engine, not meeting USA/European clean air standards

To satisfy my curiosity, did a quickie build of 4th generation EMD export model loco sales, from online data

Usual rider of errors and omissions, if anyone can amend please do

In rounded numbers looks like around 4300 4th gen export models built

By far the largest licensee is DLW Varanasi, with around 2450, so 57% of the total. Production at DLW is ongoing
