The one-of-a-kind 10,000 horsepower EMD GM10B is waiting on a crew by the ancient PRR grade crossing sign along South Front Street. EMD borrowed some design technology from ASEA/Sweden (Allmänna Svenska Elektriska Aktiebolaget; or General Swedish Electric Co.) to produce this B-B-B trucked behemoth in August 1976. It weighed slightly over 197 tons and produced 114,000 pounds of starting tractive force; about the same as an N&W Class A 2-6-6-4. The GM10B was designed for high-speed freight service, with 50-inch diameter drivers, to replace Conrail's aging fleet of GG1s, E33s, and E44s. Unfortunately, changing circumstances in the late 1970s (lower oil prices, better diesel-electric designs, etc.) doomed the GM10B and its 6,000 hp C-C trucked counterpart (GM6C No. 1975) to the scrap line. The 1976 (later numbered 4976) was cut up at the Pielet Brothers scrap yard in McCook, Illinois, next door to EMD.
