Fairbanks-Morse H15-44 on the Central Railroad of New Jersey

Unit 1512 was one of 12 H15-44's delivered to the CNJ in 1949, seen here at Communipaw, New Jersey with a passenger train in 1966. A total 35 of this road switcher were built. They had a 1,500-hp (1,100 kW) eight-cylinder opposed piston engine as the prime mover, and a Bo-Bo axle arrangement. The H-15-44 featured an offset cab design that provided space for an optional steam generator in the short hood, making the model versatile enough to work in passenger service as well as freight duty.
