Atlas SD26 N XL L M4

Atlas SD26
Jan 2022

Between 1981 and 1983 Chessie rebuilt 67 EMD GP30 locomotives.
These were B&O and C&O GP30 units that went through Chessie's rebuilding program at both the Huntington and Cumberland shops. After rebuilding Chessie did not renumber the units, but CSX decided to give them their own number series once they took ownership.

GP-30Ms were internally rewired with some modular components similar to Dash 2 units. They also recieved new IDAC wheel slip control, D77 traction motors, more…

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.

Our recording is from a 16cyl 251C and could be found in the following locomotives:

C425, C628

GMD 16-645E3B T N XL L M4

The EMD 645 series was an evolution of the earlier 567 series and a precursor to the later 710 series. When the 645 prime mover entered production in 1965, a large series of new locomotive models was introduced. The turbocharged version was used in EMD's 40 Series (GP40, SD40 and SD45) in 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW), sixteen-cylinder form and in 3,600 horsepower (2,700 kW), twenty-cylinder form. EMD also introduced the Roots-blown 38 Series (GP38, SD38) and turbocharged, twelve-cylinder 39 more…

Bowser DS 4-4-1000 N XL L M4

Baldwin 606SC and 606A Prime Movers were used in quite a few Baldwin prototypes.

DS-4-4-1000, RS-12, S-12, DRS-6-4-1000, DRS-4-4-1000, DR-6-2-1000, DT-6-6-2000, RT-624, DR-6-4-2000, DR-6-2-1000.

Though not quite correct the 606SC/606A Prime Mover sounds very similar to the 608SC/608A Prime movers This would be appropriate for:

DRS-6-4-1500, DRS-4-4-1500, DRS-6-6-1500, AS-416, AS-16, AS-616, DR-6-4-1500, DR-4-4-1500 and the RF-16(Sharknose).

ALCO 12-244 N XL L M4

The American Locomotive Company's model 244 prime mover was developed during the mid-1940s to power its post-war diesel locomotives. Interestingly, while Alco helped pioneer diesel technology dating back to the 1920s it had difficulty truly competing against Electro-Motive-Division due to reliability issues with its diesel engines. Before Alco began implementing the 244 in its locomotives the builder had spent most of the 1930s developing an earlier model that was used in most of its early more…

Athearn SD70ACU N XL L M4

This file is custom mapped for the Athearn SD70ACU Locomotives using a 58429 ESU LokSound 21MTC decoder and the factory Athearn Motherboards.

As there are 2 different startups on the SD70ACU, Air Start for NS and Electric Start for CP, we have created a file for each version:

12493.1 Canadian Pacific Electric Start Version with Nathan K3L Horn

12493.2 Norfolk Southern Air Start Version with Nathan K5LA Horn

In some cases the railroads varied on horns. Please use the list below to set the more…

Atlas Dash 8-32BWH N XL L M4

The GE Dash 8-32BWH, also known as the P32-8BWH, B32-8WH, or P32 DASH-8, is a passenger train locomotive used by Amtrak, based on GE's Dash 8 series of freight train locomotives. Built in 1991, they were the first locomotives purchased to replace the EMD F40PH.

The Dash 8-32BWH operates in a diesel-electric configuration that uses DC to power the traction motors, producing 3,200 hp (2,400 kW) at 1047 rpm. When providing head end power to the train, the engine is speed locked to 900 rpm. Power more…
