An "A+" image of a rare and now extinct model switcher. The background makes it even more interesting.

I'm seeing for the first time as well and have been a train photo enthusiast for seventy + years.

My info came from Jerry Pinkepank's original Diesel Spotters Guide, page GE-7 and the following website: http://members.trainweb.com/bedt/indloco/btphotos.html

I imagine the 8th is not very well known.   There is a photo of it in the 1927 Ingersoll-Rand Oil Electric booklet.
