Work Done:
 - EM2000 microprocessor installed, including all new electrical cabinet and SmartStart auto start/stop
 - 12-710G3A engine upgraded to 12N-710G3B-EC (this is what the plate on the engine says) (not a new engine, not certain on emissions level just yet, Tier 0+?)
 - NS-designed split cooling installed with added intercooler fan between extended inertial filter boxes
 - Original long hood retained
 - Equipped with cab signals, LSL and CCB26 electronic air brake
 - Changed from long hood forward to short hood forward where applicable
 - EMDEC Electronic Unit Injection (EUI) system
 - Setup to operate with RP-M4C road slugs

Notes:

 - "12N" in the engine desgination indicates a new firing order
