With a diesel locomotive, especially where electrical transmission is involved, fault diagnosis and prevention and cure of the smallest irregularity necessarily involve a more profound knowledge than that usually acquired by the average steam locomotive driver in the course of his career. Any satisfactory scheme for training drivers of diesel locomotives, whether diesel-mechanical or diesel-electric, should embrace training by instructors who themselves have received thorough training in mechanical engineering, including specific training in the various aspects of diesel traction. Training should take place on premises properly equipped with sectioned assemblies and diagrams.
