Thanks Norris.  I spent two years in the US Army Signal Corps at Fort 
Monmouth on the North Jersey Coast, the home of the Signal Corps at that 
time.  I was assigned to Research and Development Company, SCEL 
Battalion (Signal Corp Electronic Laboratory), Radio Suppression 
Systems.  A railroad-related assignment that I had was to go to General 
Electric's test track at Erie, PA, to run radio interference tests on a 
special diesel locomotive that GE had built for the Army Transportation 
Corps for use in various foreign countries.  This diesel could be 
adjusted to multiple tracks gauges and coupling arrangements and adapted 
for either vacuum or air brakes, and it had an aluminum hood to keep 
weight down for foreign loading gauges.   It passed our radio 
interference tests.

I later heard that it was subsequently transferred to the D&RGW 
Railroad, and saw some service there.
