aluminum cableing on locomotives
Posted by soilredneck on Sunday, November 30, 2008 8:22 PM

Did EMD ever use aluminum cables in production as did ALCO and GE?  And were any GE's other  than the U50-C so cabled?  I recall that although the U50-C was not very successful in design, the main reason they went to scrap so early was the problems with the aluminum cables.
