Looking for Information on FP7 & Serial No.
 
Wondering if someone can help me?

I'm looking for information on a ID plate I have off EMD engine listed as:

Electro-Motive-Division
General Motors Corporation
La Grange Illinois USA

Serial No G-1904

Year Built 10-47

If you can help it would be appreciated and if possible where I can find a photo so I will know what it looks like.

Something's off... FP7 weren't made in 1947 that I know of, and that Serial Number doesn't look like a EMD serial number (but maybe is a serial number for a part, not the locomotive?).

10/47 would be an F3 or an E7, I would think.

Serial # 1904 was a Rio Grande FT-B built 6/43.

Here's my info source if you want to search more.

May be F7 not sure, I work for a railroad and removed it off the engine maybe 10 to 12 yeas ago (It was coming loose :) ) I know zip about engines but the information is correct
as it states Serial No G-1904 and MO YR above and 10-47 below. It is from EMD and has a large GM on the right with DIESEL POWER Below. engine was going to EMD Lond for work.

Oh yes the metal plate is 7 3/4" long by 3" wide and was below the cab window
on what I would call the Side Sill just above the leading truck. It has paint on it that I will have to remove some day but the writing is slightly raised and Serial Number and date are stamped in.

Thanks,
