A GLOSSARY OF NEW LOCOMOTIVE TYPES

All familiar electric and diesel main-line locomotives on British Rail are probably obsolete in design in modern engineering terms, according to the author. This article is a general guide to the various new types of motive power now entering service. A brief explanation is given of the normal functioning of each type, followed by a review of the evolution of that type on various European railways. No claim is made to list every locomotive design in each category. Locomotive includes also electric and diesel rail cars since contemporary traffic requirements are tending to blend the three concepts together.
