Fascinating history of the GP18, a road switcher that was a stepping stone between the pure first generation GP7 and GP9 road switchers of the 1950s and the GP30s and GP35s that rolled out by the hundreds in the 1960s. It was one of five new models announced in 1958 and featured a new 567-D1 engine that offered more than 30 specific maintenance-saving features. Although only about a thousand were sold, the 567-D engine was a tough, low maintenance workhorse that was used in the GP30s, GP 35s, and SD35s which truly brought EMD into the second generation of diesels. This invaluable reference books lists the railroads that bought the GP18s in alphabetical order and provides black and white as well as colour photos of the engines in their company's paint scheme. With rosters showing original and secondary on inside front and rear covers. Good Condition. 83pp. 1992 Withers Publishing. Softcover, shelf wear. Inside in good condition. 0E-SNZS-OOQW
