EMD set up an operation to manufacture Geeps and switchers at Cleveland in the 1950's. Do any of you know if EMD made photos of the output there, and where the archive of that material may be?

I believe the Kalmbach book on EMD has a shot at Cleveland.

I have maybe 15 original builder's photos of the Geeps and SW-type diesel switchers constructed at the Cleveland plant of EMD. One view is of a line of locos being built inside the plant. I got these prints from several sources, but a few that I obtained from railroad authors had come originally from EMD's main office in La Grange.

A friend of mine is working on getting all the original records scanned of everything that was produced there.

Now, I would REALLY love to find a photo of the Cleveland plant switcher, one of the Model 40's.
