Diesel Era Second Quarter 2021
Norfolk & Western’s 1970s F-unit Survivors • Though it never purchased an F-unit new, N&W gained a fleet of more than 100 F7s with its 1964 acquisition of Wabash and only a handful made it to the 1970s.
Burlington Northern GP38Xs • In need of motive power in the mid-1980s, BN bought a collection of Penn Central GP38s, which the road classified as its GP38X series.
Kansas City Southern’s Tier 4s • Featuring an angled exhaust stack, a group of 25 General Electric Tier 4 GEVOs are among the newest power on the KCS roster.
Amtrak Phase II F40PHs: Part One • The majority of Amtrak’s F40PH diesel locomotives are identified as Phase II body style (not to be confused with the road’s Phase II livery). A multi-part series begins documenting these roster members.
