By the late-1940s, the majority of North American railroads accelerated re-equipping and re-designing their motive power fleets. The war effort had taken its toll on aging steam locomotives and their supporting infrastructure, and new, more powerful diesel locomotives began to be seen as viable replacements in the modern postwar economy. The Electro Motive Division (EMD) of General Motors set the standard for modernization with their E and F series of cab-unit passenger and freight locomotives beginning in the mid-1930s. The most successful of the series, the F7, sold over 3800 units between 1949 and 1953, and was employed on most of the major American railroads, where they often sported a wide variety of colorful paint schemes on both passenger and freight locomotives.
