Format: Paperback
If you remember the early diesel locos, or would like to remember them, but aren't old enough, this is a great little book. I admit being partial to EMD F-units. They were everywhere whenI was a kid, and have come to symbolize THE diesel loco as viewed by the general public.
The design and the paint schemes that went with it are still considered the ultimate in railway design. This book, while brief and not all inclusive, is a good general review of the famed units. Unfortunately, too many pages and pictures are devoted to restored locos, and not enough to the classics in their natural environment.

(***Update***) I found and purchased a used 2005 edition of EMD F-Unit Locomotives (TrainTech) by Brian Solomon on April 23, 2014 and received it on April 29, 2014 right here on Amazon! The book is in excellent condition and is an original version with color and black & white photos! I'm just letting people know that THEY CAN FIND USED 2005 EDITIONS of EMD F-Unit Locomotives on here (Amazon) and don't have to settle for the NEWLY REISSUED ALL BLACK & WHITE (PHOTOCOPIED?) VERSION of EMD F-Unit Locomotives!.......This is my review of the newly reissued version of EMD F-Unit Locomotives.....I received this book in October 2013. The print quality of the pages and pictures in the book (IMHO) IS JUST AWFUL! It looks like the whole newly reissued book was photocopied in my opinion! No color photographs in this reissued version anymore either! I've seen and had the original version of the book in my hands a few times and it has very nice color & black & white photos and its print quality is excellent! I own an original copy of the Traintech EMD Early Road Switchers: GP7 - GP20 locomotives. In my opinion this reissue is a very poor replacement of the original book in terms of the print quality of the pages and photo content! Shame on you Specialty Press it's the same price as the original version of the book with beautiful color photos and excellent, quality printed pages! Again this is only my opinion, you may not care about the all B&W photos and the very poor print quality look of the pages! (I like the original version of this book much better than the newly reissued version!) I've sent the newly reissued version book back for a full refund, found and purchased a used original 2005 edition of EMD F-Unit Locomotives with color and B&W photos! All's well that ends well! Thank you, for taking the time to read all this!

very good and factual information. Super information for all Railroaders looking for any information of specific roads and types of motors. The typr of references that a model railroad person would go to for factual infoemation.
