"This new oversize, full color book is the 'Diesel Spotter's Guide' on steroids. ... After you get Locomotives, you'll WANT to go out and see what's new!" --Railfan and Railroad "This is a field guide that is also elegant, so my advice is this: Buy two copies, and toss one in your car, and put the other one on your coffee table." --Trains Locomotives is the definitive photographic reference for the North American rail fan. It covers all mainline locomotive models built for North American railroads from the mid-1970s onward. This revised and expanded edition includes data on all the new locomotive models built from 2007 to January 2015, including the latest electrics from Siemens and Tier 4 locomotives from General Electrics. Containing 32 new pages, and over 300 photographs of more than 120 models, this remarkable large-format reference covers every locomotive manufacturer. Greg McDonnell provides concise yet comprehensive information on each model, along with easy-to-read tables of production totals, build dates and mechanical specifications.
EMD, General Electric, Alco, Baldwin, and Fairbanks Morse have built diesel locomotives. Their most popular vintage and modern models are covered in painstaking detail by author and photographer Stanley W. Trzoniec.
"A comprehensive history of North America's two major locomotive manufacturers, comprising previous 2003 and 2006 volumes with updated information and photos to take the story through 2013"--Provided by publisher.
Spanning more than one and a half centuries, this treasure trove examines the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have have kept North American commerce on the rails since the middle of the nineteenth centuty. Prolific rail author Brian Solomon takes an encyclopedic approach and describes every major type. And because locomotive-building has long been a made-to-order business, the book is arranged alphabetically by railroads from across the United States and Canada to show the variant technologies that railroads ordered to best suit their specific needs, whether for freight or passenger operations. The 75-plus railroads covered range from the best known historical lines such as Canadian Pacific, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, and Baltimore & Ohio, to today’s giant Class I roads, commuter lines, and selected short lines. The result is a profusely illustrated and beautifully presented reference guide that features more than 400 locomotive gems from throughout the ages, including historic machines such as New York Central’s J3a Hudsons, Pennsylvania Railroad’s GG1 electrics, and EMD’s classic E- and F-Units, to today’s most powerful modern diesels. All the major builders—past and present—are represented, including such heavyweights as Baldwin, Alco, Lima, EMD, GE, and more.
Ride the rails through the development and history of America's diesel-electric locomotives. Diesel-electric played a critical role in the industrialization of America. After WWII, diesels rapidly displaced the steam locomotive as the dominant source of motive power on the rails. This lavishly illustrated volume delivers detailed coverage of the development of the diesel including AC traction and the 800-horsepower beasts introduced in the mid 1990s. Solomon describes how diesels are operated and maintained today. Appendix lists where restored early diesels can be seen today.
"This book is an indispensable illustrated resource for railfans and families on road trips, filled with easy-to-find information on locomotives and rolling stock, such as railroad cars, coaches, and wagons"--Provided by publisher.
