Reply to "The new FlyerChief EP-5"

Rusty -- agree that these (EP-5s) are cool looking, made that way by the McGinnis paint scheme.  While going back to reconfirm what I think I know (which is becoming more ephemeral all the time - good thing for the Google machine!), I found that NH also had an electric loco termed the EP-4, e.g. here: http://www.rrpicturearchives.n...ture.aspx?id=3675960 (note its leading three EP-5s), which was built by GE circa 1938 in a 2-C-C-2 configuration.  Seems to me from the "waist up" it looks a bit like this Brazilian version of the other EP-4 (maybe an EF-4) Little Joe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Joe_(electric_locomotive)#/media/File:Colpa06.jpg.  Also built by GE - roughly ten years later in a 2-D-D-2 configuration.    Beyond that comparison, I know next to nothing about either in terms of the build details
