    A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel l types of diesel locomotives have been developed, differing mainly in the means by which mechanical power is conveyed to the driving wheels.. Early internal combustion locomotives and railcars used kerosene and gasoline as their fuel. Rudolf Diesel patented his first compression-ignition. After Patten's death in Westport, CT, Arthur N. BecVar (), FIDSA, replaced him as General Electric head of industrial design. Sources: Years of Design consists of excerpts from a book by Carroll M. Gantz, FIDSA, entitled, Design Chronicles: Significant Mass-produced Designs of the 20th Century, published August by.

      Unfortunately, while the old steam locomotive manufacturers were no match for EMD, General Electric was. Their market share built steadily throughout the s — and when the locomotive market took a downturn in the s, EMD contracted while GE continued to develop. As a result, GE was soon ahead of GM in market share. locomotives previously been assigned these chores. The locomotive was built in by General Electric and owned by the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad () as their D It was acquired by the CNR in and retired in CNR only owned six 44 Ton locomotives, numbered All six were subsequently sold to companies as plant.

Originally, I bought this book with the intention of finding info on one specific loco that I am researching for a modeling project.

Well, there was info in the book so I was very happy about that, but there was so much other information about electric loco, in general, that I had a hard time putting it down.5/5(7). By Stephen M.
