92 General Electric


GE 92 Postcard (ca. 1960's)

This Postcard from J. Raber shows General Electric 92 with an arriving train at Whitehorse. At that time, the old waterfront was still in place. Parts of it are visible on the left side, including the stiff leg derrick for unloading the sternwheelers.

GE as tail unit at Skagway (ca. mid 1970's)

The differences between the 2nd and the 1st batch of diesel engines (GE 90 and 91) are clearly visible on this side shot. On GE 92 as the first new engine, two 3-chime Nathan horns were added - one in front and one behind the large winterization hatch. New round SAFETY FIRST logos were added to the doors and also the large round GE logo can be seen under the engineer's window. At the time of this photo GE 92 was used as tail unit. Image collection of Boerries Burkhardt.


GE 92 with caboose 901 (1982)

The blue GE 92 with blue steel caboose 901 rests near the enginehouse at Whitehorse. David Othen visited the railroad a few months before the WP&YR stopped freight operations in 1982. The Sinclair antenna is well visible on the cab. As far as I know, all GE logos were removed when the engines were repainted blue.
