Locomotives: The Modern Diesel & Electric Reference

Locomotives: The Modern Diesel & Electric Reference Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Locomotives. Locomotives covers all mainline models built for North American railroads from the mid-1 970s to today, from EMD Dash 2s and GE Dash 7s to the latest 70 Series and Evolution Series models, as well as Green Goats, Gensets and mainline passenger electric-powered locomotives.

Containing nearly 300 photographs of the more than 120 featured locomotive models from every locomotive manufacturer, this is the definitive reference for the North American rail fan. Greg McDonnell provides concise yet comprehensive information on each model, along with easy-to-read tables of production totals, build dates and mechanical specifications.

Book News Annotation:

A transportation photojournalist with 10 volumes under his belt, McDonnell chronicles new locomotive production where Louis Marre's 1995 Diesel Locomotives: The First 50 Years leaves off, and updates The Field Guide to Modern Diesel Locomotives (2002). He also broadens the conventional coverage by including electric passenger locomotives currently in service on the Northwest Corridor, but does not include the limited number of electric freight locomotives, none of which are operating in North America at the present. Stupendous color photographs, explanatory text, and graphic data are provided for each model, within sections of manufacturers: General Electric Transportation, Electro-Motive Diesel, Motivepower/Wabtec, National Railway Equipment, Railpower Technologies, and Alstom. The four manufactures of electrics are lumped together in a single chapter. Distributed in the US by Firefly Books. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
