Omschrijving - 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 1,500 hp, Electro-Motive's famous 16-cylinder 567 diesel electric engine is at the heart of all GP7-GP20s.
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 more than 200 photos.

Omschrijving - 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. It 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.

Omschrijving - Over the past generation the Class 66 has been one of Britain's most successful and reliable diesel locomotives. After being introduced in the late 1990s, the Class has been involved in various new contracts and has taken over from the older generation classes such as the Class 56. Now operated by five rival companies, the Class keeps on growing with more success.
Ross Taylor uses his excellent photographs to illustrate this fascinating Class.
