Between 1947 and 1959, dieselization on the Southern Pacific followed a predictable pattern. Order locomotives from the diesel builders similar to the other builder's early diesels but easier to maintain.

Competition from the Santa Fe and truckers caused a re-thinking of this pattern. The SP needed to move trains quickly or be left out of the high-speed high-value end of freight transportation. Thus the jump into turbo-charged locomotives offered by both EMD and GE.
