EMD 16-567D2-T N XL L M4

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. The 16 cylinder 567D2 Turbo variation was used in the following...

Although the following locomotives do not have a 567D2, they are in the 567D family and this sound file more…

SP 4449 GS-4 4-8-4 N XL L M4

Southern Pacific 4449, also known as the Daylight, is the only surviving example of Southern Pacific Railroad's GS-4 class of steam locomotives and one of only two GS-class locomotives surviving, the other being GS-6 4460. The locomotive is a streamlined 4-8-4 "Northern"-type steam locomotive. GS is abbreviated from "Golden State", a nickname for California (where the locomotive was operated in regular service), or "General Service".

The locomotive was built by Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, more…

D&RGW K-27 2-8-2 N XL L M4

The K-27 is a class of 3 ft 0 in (914 mm) narrow gauge 2-8-2 steam locomotives built for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1903. 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…

SP Cab Forward 4-8-8-2 N XL L M4

Cab Forwards were designed to keep the crews from getting asfixiated from smoke while long tunnels. While a few other railroads considered purchasing the design, only the Southern Pacific Railroad ever bought any. Many wheel arrangements were used but most of them were of the 4-8-8-2 design.

AC-6 through AC-12 Cab Forwards Used a Saturated airpump mounted on the front of the boiler. These had a very distinct sound which we have gone through great lengths to duplicate.

ALCO 12-251C C420 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 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, 600 more…

EMD 16-645C 4EXH NT N XL L M4

The Uceta GP16s were the result of a Seaboard Coast Line rebuild program upgrading GP7, GP9 and GP18 EMD locomotives. Unlike the GP10 program which retained a 567 16cyl prime mover, GP16s recieved 645 power assemblies. A 4 stack exhaust was also applied in most cases. Most ex GP7's had a 16-645BC prime mover. While ex GP9's in many cases had a 16-645C. In some rare cases some GP16's had a new 16-645E prime mover. US Army GP16's had brand new 645E's in them. Check your prototype. Today, many more…

GE 16-7FDL16G11 LATE EXH 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). There was an interim period following the "U Boats" that began the era in GE called the "Dash-7s". During this time many locos started receiving exhaust silencers and the shape of the more…

GE 16-7FDL16Y2 LATE EXH N XL L M4

In the Mid 1980s GE changed it's 16cyl FDL design to include a different exhaust silencer, a new electric compressor often known as the "Whoop compressor" and changed some of the electronics of their locomotives. These differences among a few other led to a distinct change in the sounds from the GE 16cyl FDL often found from the U25Bs on through the Dash-7 series of the Locomotives.

Keeping in tradition with GE's locomotive series nicknames beginning with the "Dash 7" of the 1970s, the C44-9W more…

EMD 16-710G3B LATE EXH T Ed2 N XL L M4

The SD60E program was designed to upgrade 1980's SD60s with current electronic controls and crash-worthiness upgrades in Norfolk Southern's Juniata shops in Altoona PA.

The rebuilds receive a Tier 0+ 16-710G3B prime mover rated at 4,000 hp, compared to the standard SD60's 3,800 hp. Along with the HP upgrade they also received all new wiring and EMD's EM2000 microprocessor controls. These new controls altered the notching slightly in these rebuilt locomotives.

GE 12-GEVO 12LDD6 LATE EXH N XL L M4

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…
