Dual 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.

The ALCO Century 855 was ALCO’s most powerful diesel-electric locomotive. Powered by a pair of 16 cylinder ALCO 251C diesel engines, and rated more…

GTEL Turbine N XL L M4

Beginning in the 1950s, the Union Pacific Railroad sought higher and higher horsepower ratings from its locomotives to help move increasingly heavier and longer trains. Gas-Turbine Electric Locomotives (GTEL) technology promised much higher horsepower ratings over the diesel-electric locomotive designs of the time. General Electric (GE) and American Locomotive Co. (ALCO) built the first GTEL design, a double-ended, 4,500 horsepower, B+B – B+B unit, delivered as UP #50 in 1949.

AEM-7/ALP-44

The AEM-7 is a twin-cab four-axle 7,000 hp (5.2 MW) B-B electric locomotive built by Electro-Motive Division (EMD) and ASEA between 1978–1988. The locomotive was a derivative of the Swedish SJ Rc4 designed for passenger service in the United States. The primary customer was Amtrak, which bought 54 for use on the Northeast Corridor and Keystone Corridor. Two commuter operators, MARC and SEPTA, also purchased locomotives.

As this is a double ended Electric Locomotive with MANY more…

Dual EMD 12-567C N XL L M4

First made in the late 1930's the EMD 12cyl 567 Prime Movers were the power houses in many of EMD's Switchers. At the same time EMD found they could put 2 of these Prime movers together in one carbody to create a more powerful locomotive. Often geared for passenger service the E Units were created.

GG-1 N XL L M4

The Iconic GG-1 is known around the world as the American Electric Streamliner. Built by GE and the famous Pennsylvania Railroad Altoona Shops the GG-1s were constructed between 1934 to 1943. Operating in a multitude of paint schemes the GG-1s ran on PRR, Penn Central, Conrail, Amtrak, and NJT. Primarily they ran on the North East Corridor between New York City and Washington DC. They did occasionally see service on other electric lines around the north east United States.

Though the GG-1 was more…

Galloping Goose N XL L M4

"Galloping Goose" is the popular name given to a series of seven railcars (officially designated as "motors" by the railroad), built in the 1930s by the Rio Grande Southern Railroad (RGS) and operated until the end of service on the line in the early 1950s.

Originally running steam locomotives on narrow gauge railways, the perpetually struggling RGS developed the first of the "geese" as a way to stave off bankruptcy and keep its contract to run mail to towns in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. more…

GMD 12-645C N XL L M4

EAs the EMD 567s got worn, Many Railroads underwent rebuild programs to prolong the life of their locomotives. One Program in particular was the Uceta GP-16 program on the SCL. Starting in 1979 they took many of their GP7s, GP9s, and GP18s and replaced the existing 567 prime movers with 16cyl 645C Power Assemblies. This combination resulted in a unique sound never before released in the Model Railroad Market.

There were a number of these rebuild programs by many railroads. CN Had GP9RMs, The more…

EMD 16-710G3C LATE EXH T N XL L M4

The EMD 710 is a line of diesel engines built by Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD). Introduced in 1985, the 710 series replaced the earlier EMD 645 series. Since its introduction, EMD has continually upgraded the 710G diesel engine. Power output has increased from 3,800 horsepower on 1985's 16-710G3A to 4,500 horsepower on 2012's 16-710G3C-T2. Over the production span of certain locomotive models, upgraded engine models have been fitted when these became available. For example, an early 1994-built more…

GE ET44AC Tier4 GEVO ED2 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…
