The book is an excellent primer on diesel locomotives that is well-illustrated with photographs and color-coded drawings of diesels and their parts. However, the underlying theme of the book is locomotive energy efficiency, fuel economy and the Environmental.   The essential photographic reference to modern North American locomotives. This remarkable large-format reference is a revised, updated and expanded work based on the author's Field Guide to Modern Diesel tives covers all mainline models built for North American railroads from the mid-1 s to today, from EMD Dash 2s and GE Dash 7s to the latest 70 Se/5(1).

An electric locomotive is a locomotive powered by electricity from overhead lines, a third rail or on-board energy storage such as a battery or a supercapacitor.

Electric locomotives with on-board fueled prime movers, such as diesel engines or gas turbines, are classed as diesel-electric or gas turbine-electric and not as electric locomotives, because the electric generator/motor combination.

An “Electric Locomotive” is a railway vehicle that can move along rails and push or pull a train attached to it using electric power drawn from an external source, usually from overhead cables or a third rail.

Source: Another of the PRR’s experimental steam locomotives, the PRR S2 utilized two direct-drive steam turbines–one each for forward and reverse motion. This locomotive was originally intended to be much lighter, but World War II resulted in light steel alloy restrictions alongside delaying the PRR S2’s construction schedule.

The added weight resulted in the need for six. Diesel–electric locomotives (two examples are shown in Fig. ) are in widespread use around the have also been impacted by the availability of IGBTs with high power ratings.

In these trains, diesel fuel is used to generate electricity. Book: All Authors / Contributors: Brian Solomon.

Inshipments of U.S. railway rolling stock totaled $ billion, with $ billion (percent) sold to the domestic market In his book, "Electric Locomotives," historian Brian Solomon points out the first known use of a "heavy rail" electric locomotive took place in when General Electric manufactured a small, ton machine featuring two axles.

A year later it built another which utilized a pair of trucks and nose-suspended traction motors. The Re is the single most powerful individual electric locomotive in the world—produc horsepower and providing up to kN of effort through its six drive axles. Electric Railroad.
