ScaleTrains N Scale: Rivet Counter - GE Standard Turbine no Tender - DCC & Sound - Union Pacific

The Union Pacific Railroad’s quest for higher horsepower locomotives during the 1930s through 1960s led to some of the most interesting motive power in railroading history. In 1949, UP and General Electric (GE) began experimenting with gas turbine powered locomotives. The tests were successful so UP ordered 10 Standard Turbines which were delivered in 1952 and 1953. These powerful locomotives ran alongside UP’s fabled FEFs, Challengers, Big Boys, Veranda Turbines, and “Big Blow” Turbines. They were retired by the summer of 1964.
