Amtrak AEM-7 Operating Manual by GM's EMD

This manual was prepared to serve as a guide for the Amtrak engineers who operated the AEM-7 electric locomotives (aka "Toasters") along the Northeast Corridor between Washington, DC and New York City.
The manual contains five sections:
1. A general description of the principal equipment, components and systems.
2. A description of the controls, indicators,and devices located in the equipment room.
3. A description of the cab operating controls and indicators.
4. Information about normal operating procedures and conditions.
5. Information about the cause, effect and remedial action needed in the event of faults or unusual operating events and conditions.
This volume was published in 1979 by the Service Department of the Electromotive Division of General Motors, La Grange, Illinois.
It contains many illustrations and charts, including a detailed line drawing together with a numbered key which identifies every exterior feature of the locomotive.
This manual measures about 5 x 8 inches, and is in very good condition. It appears to have been owned origionally by an Amtrak engineer, whose signature is on the first page, and he made a very few notes and cross-references in the book.
It would make a great addition to the collection of any modeller or rail buff.
