PROTOTYPE INFO:


In 1949, EMD introduced the GP7. The basic design followed most diesel switchers
with the addition of a short hood instead of an end-cab. The hoods were also
full height to better accommodate the diesel engine and mechanical and
electrical components.


In 1954 EMD upgraded the GP7 to become the 1,750 horsepower GP9. Externally, the
first GP9s were virtually unchanged from the last GP7s. Later versions would
include different louver arrangements and the last ones would come without the
frame skirting. The GP9 was available with all of the fuel tank, steam
generator, and dynamic brake options as the GP7, including torpedo tube air
tanks mounted on the roof.


Many railroads chose to rebuild their GP7s and GP9s for continued service. Often
times, it was cheaper to do this rather than purchasing brand-new locomotives.
