General Electric

Lease Locomotives

Digital Image Needed Here?
General Electric has been the leading producer (in terms of sales) of new diesel-electric locomotives for several years; it also has been an important player in the locomotive leasing market for many years. In late September 2015, Wells Fargo & Co. (First Union Rail) announced plans to acquire the locomotive leasing interests of GE. "The transaction, which will add to the existing fleet more than 77,000 railcars and just over 1,000 locomotives as well as associated operating and long-term leases, is expected to close by end of Q1 2016."

The intent here then is to prepare a consolidated roster of GE's present and past locomotive lease fleets (GECX, LMS & LMX).
