In the 1940s and 1950s, American railroads made the historic transition from steam to diesel-electric power. At a time when railroads still relied on steam power for most service and diesels remained a novelty, Electro-Motive took the nation by storm with its distinctive-looking four-motor F-unit locomotives that echoed across America. The F unit soon became the standard diesel on many American railroads for over two decades.This book covers the F from its humble beginnings, to a time when virtually every railroad operated F units, and beyond. This book displays the F unit's distinctive livery in just about every setting across the American landscape with over 300 rare photographs. Feel the power of the 567 engine as you learn about their specifications in detail. Read about the challenges faced by this phenomenon in freight and passenger service, how they were overcome, and why the F unit is still regarded as one of the most fascinating locomotives in railroading. The photos in this edition are black & white.

Diesel, the most significant development in railway technology during the 20th century, was refined and perfected resulting in locomotives that were more powerful, faster, more reliable, and more versatile than the earliest machines on the market. General Motors' Electro-Motive Division rapidly moved to become the leader in diesel-electric technology. Its business practice and models essentially defined the design and operation of diesel locomotives in North America. Producing roughly 1500 hp, Electro-Motive's famous 16-cylinder 567 diesel electric engine is at the heart of all GP7vGP20s. This book is an authoritative and richly illustrated account of EMD's General Purpose models GP7-GP20. It details these early road switchers' place in history with over 200 photos. Author Brian Solomon, contributor to numerous railway periodicals and author of over two dozen books on railway subjects, including the best-selling Specialty Press title EMD F-Unit Locomotives, shares his knowledge of the history and specifications of EMD's early road switchers. A must-read for all train enthusiasts, this book details everything from the Geep's awesome powerplant to its construction, as well as its place in railway history. The photos in this edition are black & white.
