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...

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™...
