Soo was known to run these as a single unit in hot-shot TOFC trains as in the image below.

PROTOTYPE SPECIFIC INFORMATION
In 1984, EMD unveiled the first four SD60 demonstrator locomotives. The SD60 was equipped with a 3,800 horsepower, 16-cylinder, turbocharged 710G3A prime mover. Five years later, EMD began offering the SD60 with the wide nose "safety" cab with the infamous "Tri-Clops" 3-piece windshield, thus creating the SD60M. The term "Tri-clops" is a popular railfan nick name that refers to the original 3-window cab design. Union Pacific was the first road to order these new SD60M locomotives followed by Burlington Northern and SOO Line. BN’s SD60M locomotives went on to the merged BNSF while the SOO Line units went to Canadian Pacific. Some of the BNSF units found more mileage with Norfolk Southern and in lease service for CEFX.
