Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An EMD GP20 is a 4-axle diesel locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between November 1959 and April 1962. Power was provided by an EMD 567D2 16-cylinder turbocharged engine which generated 2000 horsepower. EMD was initially hesitant to turbocharge their 567-series diesel engine, but was spurred on to do so following successful tests made by Union Pacific in the form of their Omaha GP20 units. 260 examples of this locomotive model were built for American railroads. Units built for the Great Northern Railway were equipped with high short hoods and set up to run long-hood forward. Western Pacific received ten GP20s with high noses and dual cab controls.show more
