Equipment Information

Wyandotte Terminal 103 is a diesel switching locomotive designed to move freight cars around railroad yards at low speed. It operated its entire career on the WT, a switching railroad located in a southern suburb of Detroit, Michigan.

COMPARE ME WITH: Armco B-71, a diesel switcher built nine years earlier by Baldwin-Westinghouse. The WT engine has more than twice the horsepower of the older Armco locomotive and its body is designed for much easier maintenance of its mechanical components.
