Northern Pacific Railway purchased its first diesel locomotives in 1938. Over the next 30 years the fleet continued to grow, culminating in more than 700 units from four different builders. This special two-volume set documents the entire NP fleet leading up to the March 1970 Burlington Northern merger. This volume includes all models except the EMD F-units presented in volume 2.
If you are modeling Northern Pacific diesel locomotives, this certainly will be a helpful book.
