"Between 1961 and 1963, Krauss-Maffei of Munich, Germany, export to the United States 21 diesel-hydraulic locomotives that operated in an experimental service to test the merits of hydraulic transmissions under American mainline conditions." (1)

"The first order was successful enough, for SP to go back to Krauss- Maffei and ordered another 15. These were different enough for the first order to be called 'cab units' and the second to be called 'hood units'. 9001 is an example of the 'cab units' and 9014 an example of the 'hood units'. " - per Richard.A.Percy
