This beautifully illustrated, information-packed book, written by an energy expert, allows you to look under the hood of the most modern diesel-electric locomotives through an energy and environment lens. Here you can learn about:

• How every energy-related component of a contemporary diesel-electric locomotive works, including the diesel engine, alternator, rectifiers, inverters, traction motors, braking systems, auxiliaries, head-end power systems, and aerodynamics..
• Locomotive fuel economy technologies and the energy efficiency performance measures kept confidential by the railroad industry.
• Locomotive Tier 4 emissions regulations, compliance technologies, and their impact on fuel economy.
• Meeting railroad environmental challenges with alternative fuels and locomotive motive power options.
