Book Description: "This new oversize, full color book is the 'Diesel Spotter's Guide' on steroids. . . . After you get locomotives, you'll WANT to go out and see what's new!" -- Railfan and Railroad "This is a field guide that is also elegant, so my advice is this: Buy two copies, and toss one in your car, and put the other one on your coffee table." -- Trains This remarkable large-format reference is the essential photographic reference to modern North American locomotives. Locomotives covers all mainline models built for North American railroads from the mid-1970s onward, from EMD Dash 2s and GE Dash 7s to the latest 70 Series and Evolution Series models, as well as Green Goats, Gensets and mainline passenger electric-powered locomotives. Containing nearly 300 photographs of the more than 120 locomotive models from every locomotive manufacturer, this is the definitive reference for the North American rail fan. Greg McDonnell provides concise yet comprehensive information on each model, along with easy-to-read tables of production totals, build dates and mechanical specifications.
