The Revolutionary Diesel - EMC's FT
by Diesel Era

Following up on the success of its streamlined main line passenger diesels in the late 1930s, Electro-Motive Corp. challenged the century-long dominance of steam locomotives in freight service. The vehicle for this attack was a four-unit A-B-B-A demonstrator set of a new model, the FT. When it finished an 11-month, 83,064-mile-long tour over 20 railroads in 1939-1940, the contest was already over. Only the urgency of World War II traffic demands stood between the great steam fleet and the scrap yard.
This book details the units each railroad obtained, the differences between and the dispositon of the FTs.

132 pages, 250+ crisp color and black-and-white photos, 8.5" x 11" vertical format on 80# heavyweight stock, four-color cover, softbound
