EMD 16-645E 2EXH NT Ed5 N XL L M4

The EMD 645 family of diesel engines were designed and manufactured by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors. The 645 series was an evolution of the earlier 567 series and a precursor to the later 710 series. The 645 series engines entered production in 1965. All 645 engines utilize forced induction, with either a Roots blower or a turbocharger. The 645 series has a maximum engine speed of between 900 and 950 revolutions per minute (rpm), an increase over the 800 to 900 rpm maximum more…

ALCO 6-539T Ed2 N XL L M4

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…

EMD 16-645D3A T N XL L M4

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, and cab heaters. The more…

GE 12-7FDL12F42 N XL L M4

ATSF had on going rebuild programs for U-boats. After the success of the SF30C, Cleburne took aim at U23B's for rebuilding next. The SF30B is a one of a kind rebuild, which now belongs to Minnesota Commercial. ATSF saw it more effective to purchase new locomotives. The SF30B had many upgrades, the unit's horsepower was increased from 2300 to 3000 hp, as the Cleburne Shops installed a General Electric 7FDL-12F30UX prime mover. The electric systems were modified to Dash 7 standards, and Sentry more…

GE 8-7FDL8D2 N XL L M4

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 Coast more…

EMD 20-710G3B LATE EXH T Ed2 N XL L M4

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…

EMD 16-645F3B LATE EXH T Ed2 N XL L M4

The GP50 was produced in response to increasingly tough competition from GE Transportation Systems, whose Dash 7 line was proving quite successful with railroads. While EMD's SD40-2 was a reliable and trusted product, GE's line included locomotives up to 3,600 hp (2,685 kW) with more modern technology, as well as very competitive finance and maintenance deals. EMD responded throughout the SD50 program by offering discounts on large orders.

GM-EMD had previously produced 3,600 hp (2,685 kW) more…

EMD 8-567C 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 8cyl version of the 567 would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

SW8, SW900, G8, GA8, GL8, JL8, And others.....

Recorded from a EMD SW8

This project is a normal idle version. It is an air throttle version. It has switcher type exhaust with a single exhaust stack.

File also contains an more…

Goodwin/ALCO 12-244 N XL L M4

In October 1956 the NSWGR took delivery of 4301, the first unit of an order for six locomotives to be built by A Goninan and Co at their Broadmeadow plant in suburban Newcastle. In June 1957 the last of the class, 4306, entered service. They were fitted with an Alco 244 engine and were rated at 1600hp (1193kW) for traction.

While recorded from a 43 Class this 12cyl 244 prime mover sound file would also work in the following locomotives.

RS-2, RSC-2, RS-3, RSC-3, RS-10, RSC-2, RSC-3, RSD-4, more…

BLW 6-606A N XL L M4

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

RS-12, S-12

Recorded from a BLW S-12

This project is a normal idle version. It is an air throttle version. It has a single exhaust stack.

File also contains an "Isolation Switch" Mode on F15 when Standing Still.
Pressing F15 while not moving will lower the prime mover and lock the motor. F15 must be turned off to begin moving.

Another Mode is "Reverser In Center Position". When pressing F24 while stopped, the motor will more…
