| The EMD GM6-C was a solitary testbed electric locomotive for freight duties built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division in collaboration with swedish company ASEA. It was rolled out from EMD's factory in La Grange in May 1975. Equipped with close to standard trucks and traction motors, it was designed for low speed freight service. Circumstances changed after the GM6C and GM10B locomotives were developed; oil prices declined, which wiped out the interest freight railroads had in electrification, while diesel locomotive power and adhesion were improved.|
