GE"From 1925 to 1928, GE was a partner in a 3-way consortium. Ingersoll-Rand built the engines, Alco assembled the bodies, and GE furnished the electrical equipment. In the 1930's, GE developed a wide range of switching locomotives, using a variety of engines of various manufacture". While GE continued to be the exclusive electrical supplier for Alco, it began to develop its own line of heavy locomotives, and in 1960 introduced the U25B"(1) .

"GE began building small, diesel electric, 20-25 ton locomotives in 1938. Between 1938 and 1974, 550 locomotives in the 20-50 ton size range had been built. In 1956, GE sold the under-25T business to Rogers Brothers of Albion PA; but continued to offer 25 ton and larger industrial locomotives (2)
