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.

Our E8 locomotive features:

  • Now Shipping!
  • All new drive system with sprung "Gription®" wheel-sets, greater traction and electrical conduction.
  • All versions include a larger 5 pole motor with large flywheel and heavy die cast frame.
  • All AC flyer versions include a tw
  • speaker sound system, horn, bell & real E-8 V12 sounds.
  • All versions include fine DX features such as wire grab irons, windshield wipers and lift rings.
  • All versions include a pilot streamliner cover and operating couplers.
  • All versions include eight free turning fans and see-though fan grills.
  • All versions include "bright" LED directional headlight.
  • Runs on original 20" radius American Flyer track.
  • Our new "Flex Coil" power trucks provide power to all wheels and allows the wheels to conform independently to the track surface, just like the real thing. This greatly enhances tracking, electrical pick-up, and traction. (Also used on our SD60 engines).
