ALCO 12-251C C420

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 12cyl 251C can be found in the following Locomotives:
RS-32
C420
M420
M420B
M420R
M420TR
HR-412
M424
45 Class
442 Class

EMD 16-567C 4EXH GP10

The Paducah GP10s were the result of a rebuild program upgrading GP7, GP8 and GP18 EMD locomotives. Unlike the GP16 program which recieved 645 power assemblies the GP10s retained a 567 16cyl prime mover. Now using a 567C block, a 4 stack exhaust was applied in most cases. Many smaller railroads still use GP10s and it was deemed a rather successful program.

EMD 20-710G3B

The SD80MAC is a 5000 horsepower C-C diesel-electric locomotive. The SD80MAC uses a 20 cylinder version of EMD's 710G prime mover,formally known as the V-20 710G3B-ES and is the first diesel locomotive to use a 20-cylinder engine since the SD45/SD45-2. The SD80MAC introduced a wide radiator housing similar to GE locomotives and the placement of dynamic brakes at the rear of the locomotive. Key spotting difference between the SD80MAC and SD90MAC include: no external rear sandbox on the 90MAC, more…

GE 8-7FDL

The GE U18B was introduced by GE as a branch line roadswitcher in 1973. Easy to spot due to its relatively short length — 54 ft 8 in (16.66 m) — it was the only North American locomotive powered by the 8-cylinder FDL engine.

There were some export locomotives built with this prime mover:
SG10B, U15C, U17C, U20C, and the C18-7i

The U18B was not well recieved as only 5 railroads bought the locomotive, with one railroad only purchasing 1 unit, for total of 163 units produced. The Seaboard more…

EMD 12-567C

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 567C would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

SW-1200
GMD1
LWT12 (Aerotrain)

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:

SW7
SW9
NW2
NW3
NW5
RS1325

GE Cat 44

The GE 44-ton switcher is a 4-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by General Electric between 1940 and 1956. The locomotives were available with a choice of prime movers. Most were built with a pair of Caterpillar Inc.'s D17000 V8 180 horsepower (134 kW) engines. It was designed for industrial and light switching duties, often replacing steam locomotives that had previously been assigned these chores. This locomotive's specific 44-short ton weight was directly related to one of the more…

GE 12-GEVO

GE Evolution 12cyl "GEVO" locomotives have a 4 stoke diesel engine and have been designed to be more efficient and more emission friendly than previous models. Evolution Series locomotives are equipped with either AC or DC traction motors, depending on the customer's preference, though admittedly there is little sound difference if any between the two.

All early GEVOs were delivered with a Nathan Airchime K5HL air horn. Later GEVOs started to recieve a slightly different K5HLL horn. Most if more…

ALCO 6-251C

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 1000 horsepower 6cyl version of the 251C could be found in the following locomotives:

MLW S-13, MLW RS-23

ALCO 6-539

The ALCO 539 engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that ALCO's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMC were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

The ALCO S-1 and S-3 were 660 horsepower (490 kW) switcher diesel-electric locomotives produced by ALCO and their Canadian subsidiary Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW). Basically, the two locomotives differed only in more…

ALCO 6-539T

The ALCO 539 engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that ALCO's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMC were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

The 539T was equipped with the Buchi turbocharger, being made under license by the Elliott Manufacturing Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania. The first 539T engines were used in S-2 switchers and DL-105 passenger more…
