GE Evolution Locomotives ~ by Sean Graham-White  GE Evolution Locomotives 

"A new generation of locomotives for a changing world: greener, cleaner, and just as powerful. This book introduces readers to General Electric's Evolution Series, the company’s latest achievement in a long and distinguished history of locomotive design. At the heart of the Evolution's success is the GEVO 12-cylinder engine, which produces the same horsepower as the old 16-cylinder FDL while using less fuel and reducing emissions. Today’s most up-to-date railfans will want to read about the development, testing, production, and use of the locomotive that, in its first year of production, has already been ordered by every Class 1 railroad in North America. Photographs and illustrations document the features and components of the Evolutions operating across the country, and interviews with GE and railroad personnel fill in the details of current operations and plans for what is certain to be the future of American rail."

Illustrated Treasury of the American Locomotive Company ~ by O.M. Kerr 
Illustrated Treasury of the American Locomotive Companymerican Locomotive
"American Locomotive Company (ALCO) has a long history producing in excess of 90,000 steam, diesel-electric and electric locomotives, including such legends as the New York Central Hudson type and the Union Pacific's "Big Boy". ALCO locomotives have hauled many of the world's most famous passenger trains, as well as high-speed freight trains. This book is both a short history of ALCO and a treasury of builders' photographs of locomotive production over the years. The photographs accurately portray the locomotives as they appeared brand-new, from early steam to the greatest articulateds, through electrics and modern diesels. Locomotives are listed alphabetically by railway, road number, wheel arrangement, date built, driving-wheel diameter in inches and weight in tons of the locomotive and tender, respectively."
