Listen close and you can hear that 5000hp Cat growlin. PART I.
An empty Utah Rwy train has just left Martin. The third unit is a MK5000c with 5000hp of CAT V12 3612 in its hood. Turn it up and listen close, and you can that unit growling. Bet they would sound good with a 3 unit set. MK was the first to build a high horsepower locomotive, with GE following about a year later with a 6000 hp locomotive. In 2001, Utah Railway returned the units because of main bearing failure. The 3612's where pulled out, and replaced with prime movers from retired UP SD50's. There where returned with one less cooling fan (3 instead of 4) and 1500 hp less, and classed as SD50-3.
More great sounds are in PART I when the train returns to Martin and prepares to head out to Soldier Summit with 36000+hp. Video taken April 2001. Thanks for watching. Jackmp294.5™...

Going thru the gears in a CAT V8 powered 80 ton road train
Only watch this if you like big bore V8s and you've got good speakers with
the volume cranked right up! Cab ride on the Nullarbor Plain in South
Australia near the roadhouse. If you've ever wondered how long it takes to
get up to speed @ 80 tons with 600 HP this will give you some idea. More
vids to follow later.

ONR's 2000hp v16 Caterpillar powered locomotive. FP7. 9/16/1999
Ontario Northkland's south bound Northlander are seen just south of
Englhart, New Liskard, Latchford, and Temagami, Ont. According to
Wikipedia. They where rebuilt in 1997 with a v16 3615 Cat with 2075 hp. The
smoothing running 2000 hp Cat makes less noise than the power car. The
problem is, we photographed and road behind units 2000 & 2001 in September
of 1996. So much for the 1997 rebuild. 9/16/1999 Thanks for watching...

My brother's son came with me on this 11,000 km round trip during the
school holidays and was the camera man.
First clip is the roundabout at Hay NSW.
Second clip going through the S - bends at Gladstone SA on the new road
Third clip the Heysen Tunnels in the Adelaide hills. We came through the

interstate trucks which come out at night.
Fourth clip the stacked up roadtrain Coolgardie WA.
Power of course is Caterpillar's 3408 18 liter V8.
Dyno'd at 550 HP at
