New York Central E-8 Shirt
The E8 was a 2,250-horsepower (1,678 kW), A1A-A1A passenger-train locomotive built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of La Grange, Illinois. A total of 450 cab
versions, or E8As, were built from August 1949 to January 1954, 447 for
the U.S. and 3 for Canada. 46 E8Bs were built from December 1949 to
January 1954, all for the U.S. The 2,250 hp came from two 12 cylinder model 567B engines, each driving a generator to power the two traction motors on one truck. The E8 was the ninth model in the line of passenger diesels of similar design known as EMD E-units. Starting in September 1953, a total of 21 E8As were built which used either the 567BC or 567C engines.
In profile the front of the nose of E7, E8, and E9 units is less slanted than earlier EMD units, and E7/8/9s (and their four axle cousins, the F-unit series) have been nicknamed "bulldog nose"
units. Earlier E-unit locomotives were nicknamed "slant nose" units.
The NYCS had 62 of the A-units and no B-units.

Here are some great tips on how to best care for your Mohawk (or any screen printed shirt) shirt:
Use cold water. Cold water still gets your clothes clean and it's less harsh on the fabric and print.
Do NOT use bleach or other strong detergent products. Use a stain remover on spots but avoid bleach if at all possible. Standard household detergents should be just fine.
Turn your clothes inside out before you wash and/or dry them. This will help to prevent fading of the printed art.
Do NOT put your clothes in a hot dryer. Setting
the dryer to its highest heat settings for screen printed shirts will
shorten the life of the printed art. If you want to be extra cautious, remove
them from the dryer before they are completely dry to hang up or lay
out to finish drying. Like hot water, that hot air can shorten the life
of your garment.
similar textures of clothes together. Rough materials or items with
zippers mixed with your nice cotton shirt can rub the graphics and cause
them to crack and peel from too much friction.
