This beautifully illustrated, information-packed book allows you to look under the hood of the most modern diesel-electric locomotives to see how they work. Every energy-related component is explained, including the diesel engine, alternator, rectifiers, inverters, traction motors, braking systems, auxiliaries, head-end power systems, and aerodynamics. Also covered are fuel economy, emissions reductions, and alternative fuels and power options. The author, Walter Simpson, has applied his own experience and those of other locomotive and technical experts to produce this comprehensive title.
