    I have a small colection of diesel-electric plates;
    GE u-boat, U-25-B
    EMD SD-35
    EMD SDP-40-F Yes, an Amtrak locomotive. Rare plate.
    have a few more, they are all in storage, no pictures at this time.

    Like the GE plates better, cast aluminum.

    You can find plates at train shows for about $20
    Steam power rules!
