FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF 956 SERIES DIESEL ENGINES FOR POWERFUL LOCOMOTIVES

The author reports that with a total of 360 engines of the 956 series in traction service, a 20-cylinder version has been developed extending the range to 5000 hp. Direct air cooling of the charge air brings economies both in weight and bulk, as well as reduction in maintenance work, and similar advantages can be gained from air cooling of lubrication oil. The trend towards higher speeds with less emphasis on adhesive weight could be met by a twin-engine Co-Co unit of 8000 hp within a 23-ton axleload.
