  • General Electric 70-Ton Diesel Locomotives (Sims)

The familiar General Electric 70-tonner was found almost everywhere. With a single engine delivering 600 horsepower and weighing 30 tons less than a standard 600-hp. switcher, its market was aimed at undercapitalized steam powered short lines and industries. Versions were adapted for industrial, export and narrow gauge service. Over 400 70-tonners were built between 1946 and 1957, eventually operating from Canada's Hudson Bay to Chile. This book details the 200 domestic units and another 200 exported variations. Over 270 B&W photographs of Class 1, short line, industrial, narrow gauge and export users. Includes a complete production list.  Shade Tree Books 2013 SB. New. 172pp. NOS-GE7-0TN
