SD70ACe/lc is a low clearance, export version of the SD70ACe. In 2004, BHP Billiton of Australia ordered 13 SD70ACe/lc locomotives for use in iron ore traffic, and an extra locomotive for spare parts. The "lc" in the model designation stands for "low clearance" as these locomotives are designed to negotiate the tight clearances under the mine equipment. External differences between the SD70ACe and SD70ACe/lc models include the addition of marker lights, number boxes lower in the body rather on top of the cab, windscreen protector panels (to deflect abrasive iron ore when in mid train position), fire suppression canisters, louvre style vents, different horn and subtle differences with handrails.
