Electro-Motive regularly displays
cutaway engines at industry events including the Work Boat Show
and the Railroad Supply Industry meetings. Over the years they
have produced a number of cutaway versions of their Diesel engines
for use at these shows. This cutaway front end of a 710 engine
was built in the 1980s.
This is a closeup view of the air
box area of the cutaway 567D3A engine front end that was used
for many years in the EMD Training Center in La Grange, Illinois.
The partial engine was mounted on a rotating turntable in the
classroom floor and was powered by a motor hidden in the oil strainer
box, so it could "run".

This cutaway front end of an EMD
567B engine may have been built by a railroad from a retired engine.
This engine appears to be the one that was carried around the
Erie Railroad as a display on their Centennial Exhibition train
in 1951. It is now on display at the New York Museum of Transportation
located in Rush, New York. The ALCO Model 244 engine visible in
the left background is discussed on the "Other Builders"
