Carried on smooth-riding A-1-A Blomberg trucks, EMD’s E8 locomotives were built for speed, making them prime candidates for passenger service. Sharing the distinctive “bulldog nose” carbody style with their shorter F-unit counterparts and powered by dual 12-cylinder prime movers riding atop A-1-A Blomberg trucks, EMD’s E-units were both smooth riding as well as fast, making them exceptional at comfortably pulling long trains in passenger service. Built in the 50’s as an original C&NW unit, #5022-B was used as name train locomotives for nearly a decade before being refitted for suburban service.
Dual Headlight, Non-Dynamic Brakes, Chin Pilot, designed for Passenger service pulling the C&NW "400"
