Welcome to the GE exports
page, designed to run alongside Larry's GM's,
and Rolf's ALCo's.
to subscribe to World-Diesel-Loco
World-Diesel-Loco info List!
place to chat and talk about GE export Loco's!
Public launch was on May 20th
2000, and no doubt over time the information that is missing will be collected.
Initially I am concentrating on models U5 and upwards, and I am not covering USA
and Canada at this time. These may follow later.
I am very much hoping to provide
a brief introduction to each class of Locomotive, with a few lines describing
the duties of each type, if possible where and what the Locos are used nowadays,
ESPECIALLY if there are any known workings on passenger trains.
If anyone can add any info or
see any errors then please contact me,
And please sign the guest book at bottom on this page.
