A fascinating look at the GM/EMD's FL-9 locomotives as they run on the New Haven, Penn Central, Conrail, Amtrak, Metro North, Connecticut DOT and beyond. These "bulldog" units have been the subject of much controversy and this book explores the arguments on both sides of whether it was simply "FL 4.5" or capable of establishing a solid reputation on both diesel and third rail. The author details the original design and use of the "bulldogs" and then follows them through the years as they run throughout the Northeast. Illustrated with over 200 beautifully crisp full color photos on heavy, glossy paper showing FL-9s in all manner of paint schemes (which should be invaluable for the modeler of any of the above lines). With charts on engine specifications and status of fleet as of 1997 as well as a bibliography. 116 pages.
