General Electric 70 - Ton Diesel Locomotives
Stock #: KB10856
Author: Ronald D. Sims

List Price: $38.00
Karen's Price: $34.95

Never a major component of any Class I railroad roster, the General Electric 70-ton diesel “road switcher” could be found almost everywhere in American railroading, serving lines that weren’t built to accommodate larger locomotives. It was conceived as a ¾-scale model of the EMD SW1 switcher, to be sold with easy financing to shortlines and industries with line-haul operations. Given this opportunity, GE took advantage of advances in diesel engine performance and its already cutting-edge manufacturing techniques to develop a single-engine diesel locomotive with 600 horsepower that weighed thirty tons less than an Alco or Baldwin or EMD switcher rated at the same power. A truly bare-bones machine, the proposed new GE switcher could be sold at a significantly lower base price and be at home on rail too light to support a “standard” 99-ton switcher. Over 270 photos from Canada's Hudson Bay to Chili's Atacama Desert, and from Australia and the Philippines, which the majority of photos taken in the United States. Hard Cover. more»
