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 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 12cyl version of the 567B would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

SW7, SW9, NW2, NW3, NW5, RS1325

EMD 12-567C 2EXH NT N XL L M4

91806.1 - SW900 - Lehigh Valley

95829.6 - SW1200 - Southern Pacific

The SW1200 was the third model of 1200 hp SW series switchers built by EMD. It was a successor to the SW7 and SW9. Compared to its direct predecessor, the SW9, the SW1200 differed in that it used the improved and more reliable 567C engine, compared to the SW9's 567B engine. Late SW1200s built in 1966 were instead built with the 567E more…

Bowser SD30C-ECO N XL L M4

The EMD SD30C-ECO is a 3,000-horsepower (2,200 kW) C-C diesel-electric locomotive built by EMD. Although similar to the EMD SD32ECO, the SD30C-ECO follows the Canadian Pacific Railway's request for crashworthiness and EPA emission standards with the "C" in the designation denoting crashworthiness of the cab, frame, and fuel tank. CP requested relaxed emission standards (Tier 0+ instead of Tier 2) to cut costs.

Cores for the locomotives come from CPs fleet of EMD SD40-2s. The frames, trucks, more…

ALCO 12-244 LHF N XL L M4

Bowser RS-3 Long Hood Forward Version

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 more…

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…
