"The mightiest electric locomotive in the world" when they rolled out of General Electric in 1918, the Milwaukee Road's EP-2 "Bipolar" quickly captured national attention. The railroad and builder staged events where the electric would push a struggling steam locomotive back with ease. Their size, power and look were unlike anything on the rails. And they thrust the Milwaukee and their passenger trains into the spotlight. Their unique form even inspired electric trains of a much smaller scale!
