  • All units were Phase I

NC/NC1/NC2 Differences

All three models were identical in appearance. The differences according to EMD are:

  • NC¬†could not m.u., and offered General Electric or Westinghouse electrical systems
  • NC1¬†had m.u. and offered only Westinghouse electrical systems
  • NC2 is vaguely described as having “wiring” differences but still had Westinghouse electrical gear

Even Jerry Pinkepank in his legendary Diesel Spotter’s Guide II was bewildered!
