Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The EMD BL20-2 is a diesel-electric locomotive that was introduced in order for EMD to gain entry to the rebuild market for the second time. Nearly a decade after production of the GP15-1 ceased, EMD revived the BL series in an attempt to crack the rebuild market and compete with GE's Super 7 series. All three BL20-2 demonstrators, road numbers 120-122, were built on the 56 foot, 2 inch frames of ex-Burlington Northern GP9s of Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, Northern Pacific and Spokane, Portland & Seattle heritage. All three demonstrators were outshopped from La Grange in mid-1992. They bore no resemblance to the pre-GP series EMD BL1 and BL2 models of the late 1940s. Neither did they resemble GP9s, at least not from the frame up. On the inside, the unit married the technology of two generations, with a rebuilt 16-567 engine mated to an AR10 alternator and Dash 2 electrical system.show more
