As steam locomotion was winding down and General Electric was working with the American Locomotive Company to compete with General Motors, Westinghouse wanted a part in the electric and Diesel-electric market as well. Working mainly with Baldwin, it had built or contributed to more than 300 locomotives between 1900 and 1935.
After the war, however, Baldwin quickly declined. Westinghouse couldn’t predict that when it produced this 1948 booklet describing straight electric, Diesel electric, steam-turbine electric, and gas-turbine electric locomotives. The illustrations are attractive, but Westinghouse would have a hand in just five more locomotives after this booklet came out.
This booklet is from the collection of Richard Leonard, who posted individual page images on line. With his permission, I have turned them into a PDF. The PDF doesn’t include the inside front and inside back covers, which were blank.
