Wow- I haven't seen that engine in a long time. I "knew" it when it resided in Charleston, SC with the Charleston Chapter NRHS.

Logan Corp is still in business and says they are authorized GE distributor:

In this family, the 50t is an enigma to me. It is electromechanically identical to the 45t except being a 2-axle locomotive instead of 4. So the book says. I have never seen a picture of this whimsical beast, and the book has no illustrations.

I don't know how much it weighs, but the Georgetown Loop has a 3-ft gauge 2-axle GE: RRPicturesArchive.net - Pictures of GLRX 21

It came from the Rocky Mountain Steel Mills (formerly Colorado Fuel & Iron) in Pueblo.

The 45 and 50 tonners are virtually identical with the exception of the ballast. Therefore the 50 tonner has 4 axles. 25 and 35 tonners have 2 axles. If there's a 50 tonner out there with 2 axles I've never heard of it

Thank you all for your helpful posts. A member has graciously copied a set of diagrams he had and mailed them to me.

I will post updates on the restoration as they happen.
