The MKT was an original owner, it acquired these models new from Baldwin:

DS4-4-1000(NA)

From February 1959 to March 1960 MKT sent its entire fleet of eleven DS4-4-1000NAs to EMD to have their 8 cylinder normally aspirated Baldwin engines replaced by 1000 hp, twelve cylinder, EMD 567C engines. In the 1960 numbers 1000-1010 were renumbered 22-32.
