Freight Motor


# L254 is a 25-ton electric locomotive built by General Electric. It was equipped with Third Rail Shoes for use at the copper mines as a trolley wire a pole would have been in the way. It was assigned to the Great Falls Reduction Department at Anaconda Copper Mining

This type of freight motor is typically called a steeple cab. The cab was designed to give the operator a clear view no matter which direction the motor was pulling. This way the locomotive would never have to be turned around
