From about 1998 to October 2013, Andre Kristopans maintained a personal web site where he had compiled the serial numbers and other builder data for railroad locomotives and other equipment built by Electro Motive Corporation and Electro Motive Division of General Motors, as well as its international licensees.

The web site was hosted by the free WebTV service (MSN TV after 2001), which Microsoft shut down effective October 1, 2013. (see links at bottom of page for Read more about WebTV/MSN TV)

The following series of web pages have been assembled from three different sources: 1) files obtained from Andre via email during early September 2014; 2) files harvested from the Internet Archives Wayback Machine; and 3) pages harvested from a group of pages at

Andre Kristopans wrote the following as an introduction to his original WebTV web site:

Welcome. What I am attempting to do in this page is to put together an all-inclusive General Motors locomotive production listing as originally delivered. I was motivated by the fact that I have been putting together these lists from Product Reference Manuals, X2200S, LNII, etc. and decided to share them with the world.

Much data came from P. Allen Copeland, Sean Graham-White and Martin Baumann. Larry Russell's EMD Export Page's photos helped identify many export units as to model. Overseas licensee lists are from all over, including Phillip Graham-originated lists, several Scandinavian railfan sites, including the "GM Locomotives in Europe" and A. Scmit's ABB and NOHAB site, John Cleverdon's Australian Locomotive Page, Christer Goransson, RobertoYommi, Joao Bosco Setti, Steve Palermo, Philip Wormald, Gustavo Bonetto, Alessandro Albe and others I might have forgotten.

Most operator names have been Anglicized. Within each series, locomotives are listed in serial number order, with GMD following EMD. Overseas licensee production is shown by licensee in separate sections. Thanks!
