    I'm a newbee on a learning curve. Does anyone know of a source which explains what the letters that identify locos stand for, ie; GP, SD, RS,etc,etc,etc It would also be helpful if the site explained what the different ones where used for and a brief history. Web based would be good or perhaps a book I could buy.

    Try our Trainspotter ID forum, right her at The Gauge...! :) The search tool may also turn up some other dicussions here as well.
