7 Burlington Northern's SD40-2 Fleet - Part 2Diesel Era staff
Between 1972 and 1980, BN amassed a fleet of 827 SD40-2s, which was, at the time, an impressive number. In this three-part article, we review the SD40-2s, order by order.
30 Baldwin VO-1000 - Part 10Paul K. Withers
In our continuing series covering Baldwin's VO-1000 model, we take a look at the VOs purchased by the U.S. government during World War II for use at defense plants and military installations across the nation.
36 Norfolk & Western GP4Os - Part 1Paul K. Withers
To meet growing traffic and the effects of several mergers, N&W purchased a fleet of 60 four-axle high-horsepower GP4Os from EMD in 1966 and 1967. The units now only met the carrier's expectations, but some 38 years later, 28 of the units remain in service on N&W's successor, Norfolk Southern.
41 Erie Lackawanna's SDP45s - Part 2Larry DeYoung
After EL took delivery of 37 SD45s in 1967 and 1968, the carrier still had a large fleet of aging EMD and Alco cab units to replace. Based on its experience with the 20-cylinder giants, it added 19 more in 1969, but equipped with 4,000-gallon fuel tanks to extend their range. Although called SDP45s, they moved only freight between northern New Jersey and Chicago.
