Known by their nickname "Mudhens," they were the first and the most numerous of the four K classes of Rio Grande narrow gauge engines to be built. Of the original fleet of 15 locomotives, two survive to this day and operate on heritage railways in the United States.

Fifteen locomotives were built, originally class 125, they were more…

Detroit Diesel Dual 6-110 N XL L M4

Budd RDC
Detroit Diesel Dual 6cyl Prime Movers

The Budd Rail Diesel Car, RDC or Buddliner is a self-propelled diesel multiple unit (DMU) railcar. Between 1949 and 1962, 398 RDCs were built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The cars were primarily adopted for passenger service in rural areas with low traffic density or in short-haul commuter service, and were less expensive to operate in this context than a traditional diesel locomotive-drawn train with coaches. more…

Dual ALCO 16-251C N XL L M4

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 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 ALCO Century 855 was ALCO’s most powerful diesel-electric locomotive. Powered by a pair of 16 cylinder ALCO 251C diesel engines, and rated more…

Dual EMD 12-567C N XL L M4

First made in the late 1930's the EMD 12cyl 567 Prime Movers were the power houses in many of EMD's Switchers. At the same time EMD found they could put 2 of these Prime movers together in one carbody to create a more powerful locomotive. Often geared for passenger service the E Units were created.

Dual EMD 16-645E3A N XL L M4

The Dual EMD 16cyl 645E3A prime movers were used in Union Pacific's DDA40X locomotive. Each of the two prime mover provides 3,300 hp. The DDA40X is the most powerful single-unit locomotive ever built.

As the DDA40X program was a test, a number of experiments were conducted during the service life of these locomotives. One such test included fitting a few of the units with air raid sirens to warn track-side personnel when away from grade crossings, but the results were inconclusive. Another more…

Dual GE 16-FDL16 2EXH N XL L M4

The GE FDL-16 prime mover was first used in 1959 in the General Electric U25B locomotive. Over the years little changed in terms of sound until the "Dash-8" series of GE locomotives was introduced. Known for their throaty chug and shaft driven compressor (rather than the more modern “Whoop” electric compressor).

Essentially 2 U25Bs built on a single frame, the U50 was designed to replace the turbines on UP. Using scrapped Turbine frames 2 FDL 16 Prime movers were put together creating a 5000 more…

EMD 12-1010J LATE EXH N XL L M4

EMD SD90MAC-H Phase II or SD70ACe-T4?

The SD70ACe-T4 is the Tier 4 emissions standards-compliant version of the SD70ACe. The first locomotive, EMDX 1501, was built in summer 2015, and made its debut at the Railway Interchange Expo in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the weekend of October 3–4, 2015. It features a new 4-stroke engine called the EMD 12-1010 "J" series - a V12 with 1010 cu.in displacement for each cylinder. This new prime mover has a two-stage turbocharger system consisting of more…

EMD 12-567A 2EXH NT N XL L M4

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)

EMD 12-567B 2EXH NT N XL L M4

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 567B would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

SW7, SW9, NW2, NW3, NW5, RS1325

Although the following locomotives used a slightly different variation of the EMD 12cyl 567, our sound file would be acceptable in the following as well:

SW-1200, GMD1, LWT12 (Aerotrain) more…
