“I look forward to using Walter Simpson’s new book, Diesel-Electric Locomotives, as a text for our Railroad Mechanical Practicum course.

The book is a good fit because, like Walter, many engineering students today are not only interested in how diesel-electric locomotives work but also are extremely passionate about energy and energy conservation.”.

This up-to-date diesel and electric locomotive guide book picks up where Louis A. Marre's book, Diesel Locomotives: The First 50 Years, leaves off.

I needed the book to find out more about a historical relationship between Pennsy electric locomotives from the immediate post-war era (the four Westinghouse Rectifiers) and their Dutch and Spanish offspring. In that respect there was nothing in the book I didn't know already.4/4(7).

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 electric locomotive book which utilized a pair of trucks and nose-suspended traction motors. Diesel-Electric Locomotives 1. How They Work 1a. Video Tour of an F1 2. History. 1.)

A typical small locomotive develops a drawbar pull of kN ( lb-ft) at km/h from a 4 kW, 48 V totally enclosed series motor with split field.

While a whole book could be written on the invention of multiple-unit control, suffice to note here that a number of diesel electric locomotives could be coupled together, with the controls for each plugged into a single locomotive cab so that a single engineer and fireman could control eight or ten locomotives coupled together on the head of a.

The hybrid diesel locomotive is an incredible display of power and ingenuity. It combines some great mechanical technology, including a huge, cylinder, two-stroke diesel engine, with some heavy duty electric motors and generators, throwing in a little bit of computer technology for good measure.

This ,pound (,kg) locomotive is designed to tow passenger-train cars at speeds of. This book gives every class of diesel and electric locomotive a spread, covering full technical details, followed by illustrations showing vehicle ends, both sides and an action picture of the class detailing livery and covering any obvious modifications in the Rating: % positive.

[] (OCoLC) Locomotive, by Brian Floca, is a Caldecott book, which tells the story of a locomotive's journey across the western frontier to the west coast. To begin, the story has a simple plot, which is made more interesting, as the main character is a locomotive/5(K).

While the documentation of diesel locomotives is extensive, Walter Simpson’s new book brings a fresh perspective to the literature. 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.Although electric trains are widely deployed in Europe due to extensive electrification, the diesel electric locomotive is more prevalent in other parts of the world [67].

The voltage-source inverter (VSI) was first applied to diesel–electric trains in using the GTO. By .The locomotives for underground haulage fall into three main groups: (1) compressed-air locomotives, (2) internal-combustion locomotives, and (3) electric locomotives.

So far as electric haulage is concerned, the locomotives may be divided into two types: (a) trolley locomotives and (b) storage-battery locomotives.
