88 pages

Whether you're a modeler trying to find and appropriate diesel locomotive for your layout or a railfan trying to identify an engine in a photograph, The Model Railroader's Guide to Diesel Locomotives will be a valuable reference for you. This book covers the history and development of diesel locomotives, from pioneering boxcab switchers of the 1920s and streamlined passenger and freight locomotives of the 1930s and '40s to today's high-horsepower AC-traction-motor road locomotives. Charts showing construction and service dates for each prototype locomotive will help you choose models that match the era you're modeling.

This book includes information and tips about:

  • how diesel locomotives work
  • histories of the major builders, including Alco, Baldwin, EMD, Fairbanks-Morse, and General Electric
  • identifying and spotting diesel locomotives
  • owners and road numbers for various locomotive models
