Class B-B Phase 1B (B/N12947)

This engine was built by the General Electric Co. of Pennsylvania in 1941. It weighs 44 tons and produces 380 HP with 2 diesel engines. #110 was the first new piece of equipment ever purchased by the Arcade & Attica. It replaced the last steam locomotives used in regular freight service, making the A&A one of the first diesel operated railroads in the United States. It served as the primary engine along with sister engine #111 until 1984. Engine #110 was so successful economically and labor and cost effective that General Electric referenced the A&A in advertising to sell similar locomotives to other railroads. The Whistle post is placed at the approach of a crossing along the tracks. The W casted in the cement posts signals to the engineer that he is approaching a crossing. The engineer then blows the whitle to warn on coming [sic] traffic. Two long blasts, a short blast and another long blast is the standard signal for trains entering an upcomin crossing.
