The R&LHS has published a series of articles presenting the INSIDE EMD full color plant tour lecture program in a presentation similar to the slide show that was shown around the US to many railroad historical groups over a span of many years. The articles are being published as follows:

Part One - covering the building of the EMD La Grange Plant and the construction of EMD diesel engines - was published in the R&LHS RAILROAD HISTORY Issue #218 - Spring 2018.

Part Two - covering the building of DC and AC main generators, traction motors, electrical components, and electrical cabinets - was published in RAILROAD HISTORY Issue #219 - Fall 2018.

Part Three - covering the assembly of locomotives, painting and testing, and the demolition of EMD Plant One in La Grange - will be published in RAILROAD HISTORY Issue #220 in Spring 2019.

The original tour program was over 400 slides. Due to space considerations, the series of articles will show about 200 of the images.

RAILROAD HISTORY is the membership journal of R&LHS. Copies are available by joining R&LHS. Information on membership and RAILROAD HISTORY are available at their website:

http://www.rlhs.org

R&LHS does sell extra copies of RAILROAD HISTORY but supply is limited, and when they are gone, they are gone. Persons joining for 2019 will receive Issue #220 as part of their membership, and can then purchase issues #218 and #219 at member rates while the supply of those issues lasts.

My thanks to the many folks on RYPN who joined R&LHS to obtain this series of plant tour articles.
