EJ&E Baldwin DT-6-6-2000 704
Title:  EJ&E Baldwin DT-6-6-2000 704
Description:  EJ&E Baldwin DT-6-6-2000 704 at Joliet, Illinois on February 13, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 704 was built in March 1948 as EJ&E 104 (c/n 73712), originally equipped with two Baldwin 606SC (SC = Super Charged, utilizing Elliot BF-34 turbocharger) six-cylinder diesel prime movers. It was rebuilt during December 1960 by EJ&E and the 606SC's were replaced with 606A's. The 606A's improvements over the 606SC included a newly designed Elliot H-503 turbocharger, new web plates to improve alignment between the prime mover and main generator, heavier and dynamically-balanced crankshaft and connecting rods, and new mounting points to reduce operating shocks, and resulting in an increase in horsepower from 1000 (606SC) to 1325 (606A). This unit was retired in February 1970 and traded to EMD.

This unit was retired in February 1970 and traded to EMD.
