The Erie-Built dual service locomotive represented the entry of builder Fairbanks-Morse (FM) into the large cab style road locomotive market. With a carbody styled by industrial designer, Raymond Loewy, these 2,000 hp locomotives were actually contracted by FM to be constructed at General Electric's Erie, Pennsylvania plant since they were too large for the capacity of their own shop: hence the identifying name, "Erie-Built". Produced from 1945 through 1949, these visually impressive locomotives operated on some of the nation's largest rail lines from coast to coast.
