GE and EMD Locomotives The Illustrated History


General Electric and Electro-Motive have designed some of the most iconic locomotives in the history of North American railroading. For the first time, acclaimed rail author Brian Solomon's defining histories of these two manufacturers' North American machines are available in a single photo-packed volume. In GE and EMD Locomotives: The Illustrated History, nearly 400 photographs are accompanied by the stories of the two manufacturers, beginning with GE's earliest efforts in the 1890s and EMD's first steps in the 1920s. Solomon brings the stories up to date with new chapters detailing such recent developments as GE's revolutionary Evolution locomotives and EMD's SD70ACe and SD70M-2.

From GE's electric legends, such as the Pennsylvania Railroad E44s, Amtrak E60s, and Milwaukee Road "Little Joes," to mid-century F units, workhorse GPs and SDs, and Dash series, and all the way through the rivals' cutting-edge modern "green" designs, GE and EMD Locomotives: The Illustrated History leaves no turn unexamined in the tales of these industrial giants and the competition that continues to drive them forward.
