80-ton GE         
This General Electric drawing from May 1937 illustrates the basic appearance for 80-tonner serial numbers 12184-12188, which were built in October and November 1937 as demonstrators for the Cummins Engine Co. (Note that the step locations varied or changed over time.) Serial numbers 12184, 12186 and 12188 were subsequently sold to Republic Steel, while 12185 and 12187 went to the Northeast Oklahoma Railroad as 254 and 253, and in 1949 they became Louisiana Southern 505 and 504. Both of these units were scrapped at Chatham Iron and Metal in Savannah, Georgia.
