Fairbanks-Morse switcher

Nickel Plate Road No. 125 was one of 9 Fairbanks-Morse 1,000-horsepower H10-44 switchers the road received in 1949. NKP also got 22 H12-44s in 1953–58. A longtime supplier of railroad equipment, Beloit, Wisconsin-based F-M built diesel locomotives for U.S. service between 1944 and 1958 before closing out production with a Mexican order in 1963.
