Description

General Electric’s “Dash 7� locomotive line was introduced as a replacement for the older “Universal-Series� of the 60s and early 70s. “Dash 7� series improvements included increased fuel efficiency, tractive effort and reliability. The B23-7 was a direct replacement for the 2,250HP U23B model. The first units were produced for Conrail in September, 1977 (ironically, 3 months after the last U23B was delivered to Conrail). Production continued through 1984, with a total of 535 units built. Conrail was the largest purchaser of the model, with a total fleet of 141 units.

Several features distinguished B23-7s from predecessor models. The long hood stepped outward in the area of the exhaust stack to accommodate a relocated oil cooler. In addition, the frame was 2 feet longer than that of the U23B. An FB-2 style truck was offered as standard equipment on B23-7s, but some railroads opted to use “trade-in� trucks. Therefore, AAR type B and Blomberg trucks could be found on some models. The six power assembly doors (located near the center of the long hood) indicated that the B23-7 was powered by a 12-cylinder GE FDL engine.

Features:

  • Slow speed motor
  • Directional lighting
  • Golden-white LEDs
  • Dual brass flywheels
  • Low-friction mechanism
  • Accurate painting and lettering
  • Factory-installed AccuMate® magnetic knuckle couplers
