In the summer of 1960, EMD's sales team got an unpleasant surprise. General Electric, which had divorced partner Alco in 1953 and was thought to be making only export diesels, had suddenly fielded an American road switcher. Worse yet, GE's upstart U25B, regarded today as the first of the second-generation diesels, was more powerful, more modern, and required less maintenance than EMD's flagship offering, the GP20. Perhaps fortunately for EMD, the railroad industry was in a slump at the time; as the designers at La Grange rushed a competitve model into production, not a single U-boat was sold that first year.
