This is the companion volume to Interurban Electric Locomotive: From Baldwin-Westinghouse addressing the competing General Electric product. GE and BLW-Westinghouse were direct competitors in the sale of electric freight locomotives to the interurban railway industry-an economic segment that was essentially dead and gone by the onset of World War II. Even though the market for these motors was small, rugged construction, reliability and low-mileage operations allowed these locomotives to outlast many of their original owners-the under-capitalized and poorly constructed interurban electric railways.

As was the case with most non-steam locomotive builders, there was no concept of a model or a class to organize the description of the locomotives. The author has made up his own classification based upon the external physical appearance and not by electrical specifications.
