    It’s perhaps no surprise that GE is leading the charge in battery-powered locomotives, given the company’s rich history in diesel-electric technology. Take one of the company’s most famous employees, Hermann Lemp, a Swiss-born engineer who immigrated to the United States in with a dream of working with his idol, Thomas Edison. The E44 was an electric, rectifier-equipped locomotive built by GE for the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) between and They survived through the PRR and its successors (Penn Central and Conrail) until Conrail abandoned its electric operations in the early s pins.

    The little electric locomotive, on which the driver sat, pulled a train of three small carriages – each holding six passengers – around a meter-long circular track through the exhibition grounds.
