EMD 16-645E 2EXH NT

The EMD 645 family of diesel engines were designed and manufactured by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors. The 645 series was an evolution of the earlier 567 series and a precursor to the later 710 series. The 645 series engines entered production in 1965. All 645 engines utilize forced induction, with either a Roots blower or a turbocharger. The 645 series has a maximum engine speed of between 900 and 950 revolutions per minute (rpm), an increase over the 800 to 900 rpm maximum more…

EMD 16-710G3B T

The EMD 710 is a line of diesel engines built by Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD). Introduced in 1985, the 710 series replaced the earlier EMD 645 series. Since its introduction, EMD has continually upgraded the 710G diesel engine. Power output has increased from 3,800 horsepower on 1985's 16-710G3A to 4,500 horsepower on 2012's 16-710G3C-T2. Over the production span of certain locomotive models, upgraded engine models have been fitted when these became available. For example, an early 1994-built more…

GE 12-GEVO 12LDD6

Introduced in 2012, General Electric's Tier 4 GEVo Series represents the latest in diesel-electric locomotive technology. The GE Tier 4 GEVo is designed to meet increasingly stringent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions regulations.

The EPA “Tier” emissions standards are a series, or Tiers, of allowable emissions levels based upon a locomotives’ date of manufacture. The highest and most stringent tier level, Tier 4, sets maximum allowable NOx and hydrocarbon emissions levels for more…

GE 16-7FDL16J6

Introduced in 1984, the C39-8 maintained the clean contours of the long hood and rounded cab roof of the Dash-7 series but featured larger, angular radiator “wings” at the rear of the carbody, an angular low short hood, and a boxy dynamic brake and clean air compartment at the front of the long hood, which jutted above the cab roofline.

Prime Mover wise, B39-8s and C39-8s are very similar sounding to other 16cyl bathtub type exhuast 7FDL equipped Dash-8s and Dash-9 from GE. One of the main more…

EMD Dual 12-567BC 2EXH NT

The 567 prime mover is a line of medium-speed diesel engines manufactured by GM Electro-Motive Division. They were used in many EMD locomotives from 1938-1966 when it was replaced by the EMD 645. The 567 proved to be exceptionally successful in passenger, switching, freight, marine and stationary services.

E-units standardized the two engine configuration for passenger locomotives to maximize power and, while the less-reliable Winton Diesel motors were in use, face a less severe loss of power more…

EMD 12-567A 2EXH NT

The EMD 567 family of Prime Mover was one of the most widely used in the world! From F-Units to Geeps this popular power house can still be found in many locomotives riding the rails today. Our EMD 12cyl version of the 567A would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

NW2, NW3, NW5, TR2, TR3, TR4, SW7

And others.....

While the recording is from a 567A many 12cyl 567B and 567C equipped locos sounded very similar.

SW9, RS1325, SW1200, SW1200RS, GMD1, LWT12 (Aerotrain)

ALCO 12-251B

The ALCO 251 prime mover was the most popular and abundant prime mover ever made by the company. While it proved to be quite successful, it sadly outlived its original manufacturer, ALCO who closed their doors in 1969. The 251 prime mover is actually still available to purchase today from Fairbanks Morse for use in Marine, Generator, and locomotive uses.

The 1800 horsepower 12cyl version of the 251B could be found in the following locomotives:

RS-11, RSD-12, RS-18, RS-36, FPA-4, FPB-4, more…
