"NYNH8H 0112" written on side]] The first 11000 volt, single phase, New York, New Haven and Hartford locomotive leaves the assembly shop on its own two wheels. A more detailed write-up of this locomotive will appear [[handwritten note]] From the May 7, 1926 Erie Works News [[news print]] The locomotive pictures here is one of five freight locomotives, and two switch engines of unusual design which are being constructed in the Erie General Electric Works for the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad Company. Each of the locomotives will carry a transformer and synchronous motor generator set for stepping down the alternating current from the 11,000 volt trolley to direct current for operating the direct current motors. These motors are of the usual standard design geared to the driving axles. It is expected that by this type of locomotive unit, considerable advantage will be obtained by utilizing the superior power transmission at high voltage and the improved maintenance costs which are the usual with the direct-current motor. These locomotives will be delivered probably sometime in June.
