EJ&E DT-6-6-2000 921
Title:  EJ&E DT-6-6-2000 921
Description:  EJ&E Baldwin/EMD DT-6-6-2000 921 at Joliet, Illinois on February 13, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 921 was built by Baldwin in August 1948 (c/n 73729) as EJ&E 121. Originally powered by two Baldwin Model 606SC diesels with Westinghouse electrical gear, it was repowered by EMD in April 1957 with two 567C prime movers. However, because of the Westinghouse electrical gear, which was reused, the prime movers could not produce the full 1200 horsepower at 800 rpm, but were limited to 625 rpm to protect the main generators from flashng over. This had a side effect of being hard of the 567C's which suffered from poor lubrication and overheating. Eventually adjustments were made and the repowering proved to be a tolerable success. The EMD hoods were tapered at the bottom to fit the narrow Baldwin frame, and special handrail stanchions were fashioned to allow space for the passage of personnel around the wider hoods. This unit was retired in July 1976.
