In 1939, General Motors, Electro Motive Division (EMD) will start production of the FT, a 1350 HP, 567B (16 cylinder) diesel, on a 4 axle, A units are 50 8 long with a total weight of 230,000 lbs and the B units are 48 3 long with a total weight of 218,000 lbs. A total of 555 A units and 541 B units are built thru 1945. In 1945 the Lehigh Valley will purchase 4 A units (Road Numbers 500 506, even) and 4 B units (Road Numbers 501 507, odd). Pictured is LV 500.

 
My buddy sent this color photo of LV 506 & 507, thought I'd share it as I haven't seen many or even have many FT color photos.
