EMD E-8 Locomotives
The final standardized version of passenger locomotives made by the Electro-Motive Division of
General Motors (EMD) was the E8 and E9 engines, virtually identical in appearance. Improvement
over the earlier E models included larger number boards flush fitted into the nose, four widely
spaced port hole windows and "Far-air" filter grills painted or stainless steel. Powered by two
V-12 engines in each unit rated at 2250-H.P. Combining high horsepower with large fuel and water
capacity made possible by using six wheel trucks made the E units the longest in service passenger
locomotives, many still running today. Built from 1949 to 1953 and the E-9s till the end of 1963.
Over 400 E-8 engines were produced.
