are not inexhaustible. Diesel traction is normally employed today on nonelectrified.

Diesels or Electrics? The diesel and electric locomotives have some common features. On the other hand, the diesel locomotive is more expensive to build and. maintain than the electric of equal power since the diesel locomotive carries a. power planton itself. In addition, the diesel engine is an air pollutant prime. mover,so the diesel traction should not be recommended for use on. suburban lines round large cities. are not inexhaustible.

Early diesel-electrics sometimes required attention on the road, but they soon improved to the point of needing little . Amtrak gives new employees training, both in the classroom and on the road. Training is conducted at Amtrak’s crew bases, and sometimes at outside facilities.

Early diesel-electrics sometimes required attention on the road, but they soon improved to the point of needing little care except at terminals. The fireman still had responsibilities as the engineer’s helper, especially in watching the track and signals ahead and in relaying signals from trainmen. All employees, regardless of the job, are educated in emergency train-evacuation procedures.

Diesel-hydraulic locomotives are slightly more efficient than diesel-electrics, but were found in many . The electric current thus produced is used to power traction motors. This type of locomotive was first experimented with in 1920 but reached its peak in the 1950s to 1960s.

Diesel-hydraulic locomotives are slightly more efficient than diesel-electrics, but were found in many countries to be mechanically more complicated and more likely to break down. In Germany, however, diesel-hydraulic systems achieved extremely high reliability in operation. The turbine (similar to a turboshaft engine) drives an output shaft, which drives the alternator via a system of gears. Aside from the unusual prime mover, a GTEL is very similar to a diesel-electric.
