Cooper Bessemer 6-FW-6-LT N XL L M4

General Electric produced the 70-ton switcher as a complement to its 44-ton model. The idea behind the development of the 70-tonner was to provide a locomotive suitable for branch lines, switching and transfer service. To be a success, the locomotive had to satisfy certain criteria. It had to be:

• Light enough to run on 50-pound rail and light bridges,
