Last revised: May 29, 2023 By: Diesel locomotives, technically known as diesel-electrics, came into widespread use following development of Electro-Motive Corporation’s (later, General Motors' Electro-Motive Division) EA/EB design, first tested on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O) in 1937.
Years of research in diesel locomotive development via motorcars, boxcabs, small switchers, and an early line of streamlined passenger diesels; a reliable power plant; studying historical applications of the most successful steam locomotives; months of fine tuning the #103 demonstrator set; and finally, excellent customer service.
A rebuild of an existing, Class 4000 GT42CU AC diesel-electric from the early 2000’s manufactured by EDi Rail, Maryborough, under license from Electro-Motive Diesel for use on narrow gauge railways in Queensland, the BEL will be “the first zero-emissions-capable freight locomotive constructed in Australia powered by batteries.”
In this 100th Anniversary year for Electro-Motive Diesel, I am going to write and post a series of descriptions of displays and promotional devices used by EMD over the years to advertise their products and mold a public image of their organization.

An electro-diesel locomotive (also referred to as a dual-mode or bi-mode locomotive) is a type of locomotive that can be powered either from an electricity supply (like an electric locomotive) or by using the onboard diesel engine (like a diesel-electric locomotive). For the most part, these locomotives are built to serve regional, niche ...
