I went searching and found a page of specs on GE controllers (attached)

It's from

*Title:* ELECTRIC RAILWAY DICTIONARY: Definition and Illustrations of the Parts and Equipment of Electric Railway Cars and Trucks

*Author:* Hitt, Rodney


It seems that a K35 was rated for 2 x 100HP motors - so 2 x 110HP (the effective power of the two 55HP motors connected in series) is an overload, but not as much as I might have expected.
