Résumé / commentaires
General Electric entered the railroad industry in the early twentieth century and this collection of history explores all types of electric locomotives with a stunning collection of archival black-and-white, period, and modern color photography. Depicting a broad cross-section of American railroads in a variety of regions both urban and remote, Brian Solomon leads us through GE's entire locomotive history, from the first electric S motors to today's colossal, 6,000-horsepower diesel-electrics. Witness electrical legends such as the Pennsylvania Railroad's E44s, Amtrak's E60s, and Milwaukee Road's "Little Joes", just to name a few. All in all, Solomon gives us a brilliant explanation of the locomotives, the terrain they covered, pioneering GE efforts, and even the marketplace competition and the power race that fueled the development of these awesome machines.
