Did you know: The first diesel-electric locomotives have been around in one shape or form since the mid-1920s when the American Locomotive Company (Alco) joined with General Electric and Ingersoll-Rand to produce a 300 hp, 60 ton model in 1924 that would go on to be purchased by the Central Railroad of New Jersey, followed by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. In the United States a turnpike era and then a canal era had immediately preceded the coming of the railroads, which proved to be fast, direct, and reliable in all weather. After 1830 the railroads grew so quickly that within a decade their mileage surpassed that of the canals. While the stagecoach type of railroad car was giving way to the square type in the 1830s, many short-run railroads began to appear throughout the United States. The big cities on the Atlantic Coast became the nerve centers, while inland points were readily connected with one another. Only the Erie Railroad was projected on a grand scale.
