WHICH TYPE OF ELECTRIC MOTIVE POWER?

European railways favor a high horsepower-to-weight ratio and truck mounted traction motors for their electric locomotives. The Swedish builder ASEA is typical of this type of approach and it is this company's technology that Electro-Motive will use in the construction of two demonstration models for U.S. railroads. One of the demonstrators has two three-axle trucks rated at 6,000 hp; the other has three two-axle trucks rated at 10,000 hp.
