General Electric’s Landmark U25B: Wabash and N&W
Coming to Diesel Era will be additional installments of the series General Electric’s Landmark U25B. Wabash’s fleet (500-514) included some of the earliest low-nose U25Bs built. The group would serve Wabash a little more than two years before becoming part of an expanded Norfolk & Western system. Diesel Era‘s look at Wabash U25Bs will include coverage of the units during their years with N&W.
If you have images of U25Bs that would benefit this presentation or other installments in this series, please contact Managing Editor Tony Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
