BLW 8-608SC N XL L M4

The Baldwin AS-616 was a diesel-electric locomotive of the road switcher type rated at 1,600 horsepower (1,200 kW), that rode on three-axle trucks, having a C-C wheel arrangement.
Nineteen railroads bought 214 locomotives, and two railroads bought seven cabless B units.
Used in much the same manner as its four-axle counterpart, the Baldwin AS-16, though the six-motor design allowed better tractive effort at lower speeds.

EMD 16-645E3CA LATE EXH 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…

GE 12-7FDL12J7 LATE EXH N XL L M4

The GE Dash 8-32B (also classified as B32-8 or D8-32B by some railroad companies) is a 4-axle 3,150 hp (2,350 kW) diesel-electric locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems between 1984 and 1989. It is part of the GE Dash 8 Series of freight locomotives.

A total of 49 examples of the Dash 8-32B model were built for North American railroads. The model is a 12-cylinder version of the (16 cylinder) Dash 8-40B and is powered by GE's 7FDL engine. The first units built for the Burlington Northern more…

GE 12-7FDL12J7 LATE EXH HEP 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…

EMD 20-645E3 T Ed2 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…

EMD 16-567D3 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 567D3 variation was used in the following...

GE 7FDL16K16R 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.

GE's AC series of locomotives were introducted in 1994. They share the same carbody design and many of the more…

EMD 16-567B 2EXH NT N XL L M4

The EMD 567 is a line of large medium-speed diesel engines built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division. The EMD 567 16cyl Prime Mover was one of the most widely used Prime Movers in the world and was used from 1938 until its replacement n 1966. From F-Units to Geeps this popular power house can still be found in many locomotives riding the rails today. Alle 567 engines are two-stroke V-engines with an angle of 45° between cylinder banks, a bore of 8,5 in (216mm) and a stroke of 10 in more…

ALCO 12-251C C420 Ed2 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…
