Locomotives built or sold by the Westinghouse Electric Company

Westinghouse's transportation division (rail equipment) was founded 1894 and sold to AEG 1988, later merged into Adtranz and Bombardier.[1][2] Production of locomotives ended after the early 1950s.

Electric locomotives[edit]

Usually built in partnership with the Baldwin Locomotive Works, see Baldwin-Westinghouse electric locomotives.

In addition, Westinghouse produced and supplied electrical and traction equipment for Baldwin diesel locomotives from 1939 to 1955 and Lima-Hamilton diesels from 1949-1951 until production at Lima, Ohio ended with the merger into Baldwin. Fairbanks-Morse diesels also used Westinghouse electrical and traction equipment.
