  •   *EMD 16cyl 645E3 (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The emd 645 series was an evolution of the earlier 567 series and a precursor to the later 710 series. When the 645 prime mover entered production in 1965, a large series of new locomotive models was introduced. The turbocharged version was used in EMD's 40 Series (GP40, SD40 and SD45) in 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW), sixteen-cylinder form and in 3,600 horsepower (2,700 kW), twenty-cylinder form. EMD also introduced the Roots-blown 38 Series (GP38, SD38) and turbocharged, twelve-cylinder 39 Series (GP39, SD39). All of these locomotive models extensively share common components and subsystems, thereby significantly reducing cost and increasing interchangeability. The GP38-2 and SD40-2 became the most popular models of the series and among the most popular locomotive models ever built.

    This 16cyl 645E3 with Turbo sound file would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

    GP40

  •   *Dual ALCO 6cyl 539T (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The ALCO 6cyl 539T engine was developed in response to the perceived drawback that ALCO's line of diesel switchers had a restricted field of vision because of the high hood. Both Baldwin and EMD were offering diesel switchers with a lower engine hood that the trainmen could see over.

    The 539T was equipped with the Buchi turbocharger, being made under license by the Elliott Manufacturing Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania.

    This file is for locomotives that use 2 - 539T Prime Movers such as the locomotives below.

  •   *EMD 16cyl 567BC (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The EMD 567 16cyl Prime Mover was one of the most widely used Prime Movers in the world! From F-Units to Geeps this popular power house can still be found in many locomotives riding the rails today.

    We have provided 2 versions of the prime mover in the sound file.

    With Transition and without Manual Transition!

    Transition is the process by which the transmission of a diesel-electric locomoitve is brought from series wiring to parallel wiring. When in series, all current in the locomotive pass through all motors: this produces maximum low-speed force in the motors, i.e., maximum starting torque. When in parallel, current is divided among the motors: this produces maximum high-end efficency, i.e., highest motor speed. In the Early EMD 567 prime movers this could be done manually. There was a throttle lever and a transition lever on the control stands. When the engineer made transition there was a very distinct sounds of the prime mover winding down to idle then up again quickly from Idle to the throttle notch. Not all locomotives can make transition -- yard locomotives are often wired only for series. Also many locomotives were equipped with automatic transitions that occured at a high rate of speed. This classic sound of "Manual Transition" is not heard in these engines the same way as it is in the early 567s. In Fact, it is best to check your prototype as this manual transistion sound could arguably be stated to be wrong for more than it is right for! Due to this fact we have made our sound with the ability to switch between these options so you can have the proper prime mover sounds for your prototype. By simply changing 1 CV (CV 48) you can choose one or the other.

    As with All Select sound files this contains up to 16 different Horns, including so newly edited ones!

    This LokSound Select file contains two versions of the prime mover:
    Prime mover #1 (CV48=0) features a "EMD 567BC 16cyl with Normal Transition"
    Prime mover #2 (CV48=16) features a "EMD 567BC 16cyl with Manual"

  •   *GE 12cyl 7FDL Early (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    First introduced in the late 50's, the GE FDL is one of the most popular locomotive prime movers ever produced. Aside from a very few HDL prime movers installed in the AC6000CW's, FDL prime movers were still being put in every new GE locomotive until 2003 when the first Evolution Series was implemented.

    Our GE 12cyl 7FDL Early Prime mover would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

    U23B
    U20C
    U23C
    U26C

    Some newer GE 12cyl 7FDL equipped locomotive had a SLIGHTLY different sound due to a larger exhaust and other hardware. While we will be releasing that sound file shortly (#73438 GE 12cyl 7FDL Modern), this file will be a VERY close substitute until then. Those locomotives would include:

    B23-7
    BQ23-7
    B30-7A
    C30-7A

The turbocharged version was used in EMD's 40 Series (GP40, SD40 and SD45) in 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW), sixteen-cylinder form and in 3,600 horsepower (2,700 kW), twenty-cylinder form. EMD also introduced the Roots-blown 38 Series (GP38, SD38) and turbocharged, twelve-cylinder 39 Series (GP39, SD39). All of these locomotive models extensively share common components and subsystems, thereby significantly reducing cost and increasing interchangeability. The GP38-2 and SD40-2 became the most popular models of the series and among the most popular locomotive models ever built.

    This sound file would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

    GP40
    GP40P

  •   *GE 8cyl 7FDL (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The GE U18B was introduced by GE as a branch line roadswitcher in 1973. Easy to spot due to its relatively short length — 54 ft 8 in (16.66 m) — it was the only North American locomotive powered by the 8-cylinder FDL engine.

    There were some export locomotives built with this prime mover:
    SG10B, U15C, U17C, U20C, and the C18-7i

    The U18B was not well recieved as only 5 railroads bought the locomotive, with one railroad only purchasing 1 unit, for total of 163 units produced. The Seaboard Coast Line Railroad (SCL) bought 105 U18Bs, far more than the second-best U.S. customer, the Maine Central Railroad (MEC), which ordered 10. Most of the SCL and MEC U18Bs rode on refurbished Blomberg trucks, recycled from old EMD locomotives, making the U18B even more visually distinct from other GE locomotives.

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The GE B23-7 diesel locomotive was first offered in late 1977. Featuring a smaller 12 cylinder version of the FDL engine, it is the successor to GE's U23B produced from early 1968 to mid 1977, but at 62 ' 2" long, the B23-7 is exactly 2' 0" longer than the firms U23B. The B23-7 competed with the very successful EMD GP38-2. General Electric also produced a variant, the BQ23-7, for the Seaboard Coast Line. A total of 537 B23-7's were built for 9 U.S. customers and 2 Mexican customers.

    This sound file is appropriate for the following locomotives:
    B23-7
    BQ23-7
    B30-7A
    C30-7A

    Unlike our 76405 Early 12cyl 7FDL which is correct for The "U-Series" locomotives, this 12cyl 7FDL is more appropriate for the "Dash-7 Series" of GE locomotives. We will also release a "Dash-8 Series" in the near future.

    While this prime mover is not completely accurate for the following locomotives it would also be an suitable alternative to break up the monotony on your railroad.

    U18D
    U20C
    U23B
    U23C
    U26C

    Dash 8-32B (B32-8)

  •   *ALCO 12cyl 244 (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!

    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The American Locomotive Company's model 244 prime mover was developed during the mid-1940s to power its post-war diesel locomotives. Interestingly, while Alco helped pioneer diesel technology dating back to the 1920s it had difficulty truly competing against Electro-Motive-Division due to reliability issues with its diesel engines. Before Alco began implementing the 244 in its locomotives the builder had spent most of the 1930s developing an earlier model that was used in most of its early switchers. The new prime mover was supposed to usher in a new era for Alco but instead saw it slip further behind EMD in the marketplace. During the early 1950s the manufacturer replaced the engine with the more reliable 251 that powered its Century series. It would prove to be the company's last engine as it exited the market before 1970.

    This sound file would be appropriate for the following locomotives:

    RS-2
    RS-3

  •   *GE 16cyl 7FDL Modern (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    In the Mid 1980s GE changed it's 16cyl FDL design to include a different exhaust silencer, a new electric compressor often known as the "Whoop compressor" and changed some of the electronics of their locomotives. These differences among a few other led to a distinct change in the sounds from the GE 16cyl FDL often found from the U25Bs on through the Dash-7 series of the Locomotives.

    GE's AC series of locomotives were introducted in 1994. They share the same carbody design and many of the internal components as the Dash-9 series, except they are equipped with AC traction motors instead of the conventional DC versions. The cab air conditioner was moved from the left (conductor's) side walkway to a position under the cab floor to make space for the six traction inverters (one per axle) that supply the AC current to the traction motors.

    The "Modern" GE 7FDL 16Cyl Prime mover can be found in the following Locos:
    Dash 8-39B
    Dash 8 40-B
    Dash 8-40BW
    Dash 8-39C
    Dash 8-40C
    Dash 8-40CM
    Dash 8-40CW
    Dash 8-41CW
    Dash 8-44CW

    Dash 9-40CW
    Dash 9-44CW
    C38EMi
    C38AChe
    AC4400CW
    Some AC6000CW were built with 7FDL-16cyls and were later converted to 7HDL-16cyl. Some were never converted. Please refer to the prototype for reference.

    Passenger Locos including: P40DC, and P42DC were built slightly different and contained HEP. For these engines plese use Select Sound file (73482) or V4.0 Sound file (74482).

  •   *ALCO 12cyl 251B (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    The ALCO 251 prime mover was the most popular and abundant prime mover ever made by the company. While it proved to be quite successful, it sadly outlived its original manufacturer, ALCO who closed their doors in 1969. The 251 prime mover is actually still available to purchase today from Fairbanks Morse for use in Marine, Generator, and locomotive uses.

    The 1800 horsepower 12cyl version of the 251B could be found in the following locomotives:
    RS-11
    RSD-12
    RS-18
    RS-36
    FPA-4
    FPB-4
    RSC-14
    FD-6
    FD-7
    FD-9
    RSD-16
    DL-560
    44 Class
    930 Class

    The 2000 Horsepower 12cyl 251C version was extremely close to 251B in the way that is sounded. While we have full intentions to record this in the very near future the 251B is a very suitable substitute. The 12cyl 251C can be found in the following Locomotives:
    RS-32
    C420
    M420
    M420B
    M420R
    M420TR
    HR-412
    M424
    45 Class
    442 Class
    600 Class
    700 Class
    A-321

    The 12cyl 251 was also used in many rebuilt locomotives including:
    RS-3m
    C424m
    and others...

  •   *EMD 16cyl 645C (FT)*

    Equipped with ESU "FULL THROTTLE" features!
    MUST use LokProgrammer Version 4.4.21 or newer

    As the EMD 567s got worn, Many Railroads underwent rebuild programs to prolong the life of their locomotives. One Program in particular was the Uceta GP-16 program on the SCL. Starting in 1979 they took many of their GP7s, GP9s, and GP18s and replaced the existing 567 prime movers with 16cyl 645C Power Assemblies. This combination resulted in a unique sound never before released in the Model Railroad Market.

    There were a number of these rebuild programs by many railroads. CN Had GP9RMs, The DM&IR had SD-Ms rebuilt from SD9's and SD18's and others. While there were different Exhuast configurations, This file will be very close to the following locomotives:

    GP16
    FP9U
    GP9RM
    SD9M
    SD-M
    GP7U (Some- Check your prototype)

    The following locos were rebuilt from 567D Turbo locos, that have been de-turboed and repowered with the 645C Power Assemblies:

    GP20E
    GP20M
    GP35M
    GP35R
    GP38M
    SD18M
    SD20-2
    SD35R
    SD20

    **As rebuild programs tend to be unpredictable it is a good idea to check your specific prototype to be sure which prime mover was used.**
