Y6B 2-8-8-2 H0

Norfolk & Western used Y6-class locomotives primarily for slower, heavy freight trains in the more mountainous districts. Although they were used throughout the N&W, their primary work occurred on the Pocahontas, Radford, and Shenandoah Divisions. They mostly hauled manifest freight and coal trains.

When Diesel locomotives took over the main-line steam operations, the Y6-type locomotives spent their last two years mostly on mine and other coal-field runs.

EMD 16-645F H0

EMD 16-645F Possible uses... GP40X, GP50, SD40X, and SD50s

The EMD 645 family of diesel engines was designed and manufactured by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors. Developed from the earlier 567 series engines, the 645 series engines entered production in 1965. All 645 engines are two-stroke 45 degree V-engines. Each cylinder is of 645 cubic inches (10.57 liters) displacement, hence the name; with a bore of nine and one-sixteenth inches (230.2 mm), a stroke of ten inches (254 mm) more…

Baldwin 606SC_606A H0

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).

As with all Select decoders there are also 16 more…

Baldwin 606NA H0

Baldwin 606 and 606NA Prime Movers were used in the following prototype locomotives:
S-8, DRS-4-4-660, DRS-4-4-750, DRS-6-4-660.

As with all Select decoders there are also 16 separate horns, 2 separate brake squeals, and 2 bells include on this one sound profile! All changeable using CV48

GE Cat-44 H0

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…

MP40PH-3C H0

The MPXpress line of locomotives were the first production passenger locomotives to meet EPA Tier 1 and Tier 2 emissions regulations, as well as FRA safety regulations regarding crashworthiness and fire safety. Numerous public transit agencies in Canada and the United States have ordered MPXpress locomotives for their commuter rail services. To date only GO Transit have MP40PH-3C in Service but Sounder Commutr Rail in Seattle does have an order pending for 3 Units.

ALCO251 (16 cyl) H0

The Alco 251 diesel engine was developed by the American Locomotive Company to replace the 244 and 539. The 251 Prime mover was Alco’s best selling prime mover. In 1954, the 251 went into production with the inline-6 at Auburn, New York. Ultimately a refined and successful design, the 251 outlived its designer. For a time it was built in Canada by Montreal Locomotive Works. Today it is still available from Fairbanks-Morse. Examples of the 16-Cyl 251 can be found in the following more…

Big Boy 4-8-8-4 H0

During the late 1930s, the Union Pacific often used helpers to move trains from Ogden to Wasatch. The UP wanted to simplify this move so they asked their "Department of Research and Mechanical Standards" (DoRMS) to design a locomotive that could pull a 3600 ton train unassisted over the 1.14% grade of the Wasatch.
The designers determined that to pull a 3600 ton train, a tractive effort of 135,000 lbs would be needed. Assuming a factor of adhesion of 4.0, the weight on drivers would have to be more…

Shay H0

The Shay locomotive was the most widely used geared steam locomotive. The locomotives were built to the patents of Ephraim Shay, who has been credited with the popularization of the concept of a geared steam locomotive.

Shay locomotives had regular fire-tube boilers offset to the left to provide space for, and counterbalance the weight of, a two or three cylinder "motor," mounted vertically on the right with longitudinal drive shafts extending fore and aft from the crankshaft at wheel axle more…
