This week Mar. 13, 2005 thru Mar. 20, 2005 is dedicated to the Fairbanks-Morse Locomotives
So post some history, facts, or photos of your favorite models or proto locos. I am sure the RR you model had a few of these locomotives
Fairbanks-Morse, located in Beloit, Wisconsin, manufactures diesel engines. but, in the beginning the company built railroad locomotives.
During the great transition era on American railroads (the late 1940s through the early 1960s), Fairbanks-Morse built diesel locomotives to replace the steam locomotives that nearly every railroad in the country was scrapping. The locomotives used the company's opposed piston design for the locomotive's prime mover, and featured distinctive body styles.
Perhaps the best known of FM's diesel locomotives was the Trainmaster series of locomotives.
