Item DescriptionThe E8/9 diesel locomotive shared the similar "bulldog nose" car body style as the shorter, more popular F7 and was powered by two separate 12-cylinder prime movers (i.e., diesel engines) capable of producing 2250/2400 hp. The E8/9 also rode on A-1-A trucks (powered axle-idler axle-powered axle), resulting in an exceptionally smooth ride favored by crews. The Union Pacific would use locomotives such as the E9's for service on their "City of" trains, their smooth ride and higher horsepower being ideal for passenger service.
