ACL 501[edit]

As noted on the E3 page, the ACL #501 was wrecked before delivery, returned to EMC and rebuilt as an E6A, then delivered to ACL. Data is from Diesel Era November-December 1999. --SSW9389 18:35, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Missouri Pacific #7100 was a model AA. This unit was built in 8/40 in an E6A carbody with only the forward engine. The place of the rear engine was taken by a baggage compartment, much like the model AB6 for Rock Island. See page EMD-122 of the Second Diesel Spotters Guide for photo.--SSW9389 18:41, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Just a historian's note here, but all GM locomotives built prior to 1941 were built by the Electro-Motive Corporation (EMC). The Electro-Motive Division (EMD) was formed on January 1, 1941 with the merger of the Winton Engine Company with EMC.

Dorin, Patrick C. (1972). Chicago and North Western Power. Superior Publishing. p. 130. ISBN 0-87564-715-4. has C&NWRy drawings and spec sheets for their #5005A, that’s where most of this comes from. Sammy D III (talk) 01:07, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
