FM H-10-44 No. 767 at the National Railroad Museum
Photographed on 1 August 2003 ready to take my BAES group for a ride around the museum, at Green Bay, Wisconsin.
This is a Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (Milwaukee Road) diesel yard switcher.
THis type of locomotive was produced by Fairbanks-Morse from August 1944–March 1950. The units featured a 1,000-horsepower (750 kW), six-cylinder opposed piston engine prime mover, displacing 3,108 cu in (50.93 litres). They were configured in a B-B wheel arrangement mounted on a pair of two-axle AAR Type-A switcher bogie trucks, with all axles powered, and a tractive effort of 40,440 lbf (179.9 kN).
Many H-10-44s received aftermarket modifications that increased their horsepower rating to 1,200 hp (890 kW).
