Steam was quickly vanquished from road service, but remained in use on smaller branch lines.

      In December , it was announced that Indian Railways will move forward with converting all of its existing locomotives to dual-fuel LNG engines, which will cut diesel consumption by 20%. The company has negotiated a long-term deal with PetronetLNG for fuel supply and is retrofitting locomotives with Cummins HP engines. Standard Sentinels had a two-cylinder vertical engine giving HP. The recommended engine speed was rpm, with Sentinel setting a maximum of rpm, corresponding to a locomotive speed of 21mph. Typically, the engines were run at lower speeds around rpm which gave good fuel economy.

    A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a a locomotive is capable of carrying a payload, it is usually rather referred to as a multiple unit, motor coach, railcar or power car; the use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter and Iron Highway).

“Walter Simpson has written a well-researched, beautifully illustrated book on diesel-electric locomotives that removes the veil on the secret world of locomotive fuel economy and lays out strategies for further reducing fuel use in these already efficient machines.” - Ashok Gupta, Senior Energy Economist, Natural Locomotive fuel economy book Defense Council.

However, the underlying theme of the book is locomotive energy efficiency, fuel economy and the Environmental Protection Agency’s emissions standards, leading to Tier 4 compliance. "Walter Simpson has written a well-researched, beautifully illustrated book on diesel-electric locomotives removes the veil on the secret world of locomotive fuel economy and lays out strategies for further reducing fuel use in these already relatively efficient machines." – Ashok Gupta, Senior Energy Economist, Natural Resources Defense Council.

The fuel efficiency for a freight truck can be estimated in a similar way. For example, a heavy-duty diesel truck hauling 19 tons of freight a distance of miles Locomotive fuel economy book consume approximately 71 gallons of diesel fuel, assuming an average 7 miles per gallon truck fuel economy and a typical truck payload of 19 tons.

diesel locomotive and also briefed on driving technique and other aspects of locomotive operation related to fuel efficiency. Measuring of Fuel Economy: Fuel Economy is measured in terms of SFC (specific fuel consumption). It is the amount of fuel consumed per unit work of done. The Evolution Locomotive is the most advanced, fuel-efficient, and environmentally clean diesel locomotive in history.

It is a hybrid diesel-electric locomotive that captures braking energy and stores it in batteries and allows railroads to move a ton of freight nearly miles on a single gallon of fuel. How all energy-related components of a contemporary diesel-electric locomotive work; Locomotive fuel economy measures shrouded in secrecy by the railroad industry; Emissions regulation and technology; Railroad motive power options to address the threat of climate change.

Throttle setting - Idle. For extreme cold, throttle setting may be higher when idling (notch 3) resulting in higher fuel consumption * Units built after 6/79 have Model E3B fuel economy diesel engine. ** Low idle Fuel Specific Gravity Barometric Pressure – ” Hg.

Air Intake Temperature – 60°F. Turbocharging increased fuel economy by %; I don't specifically know why E units had such relatively awful fuel economy. I am inferring from your post that the engine really didn't accomplish as much as you think it should, relative to the I may be inferring incorrectly, but allow me a comment on that.

The volume is divided into broadly 4 parts which discuss various aspects of the proposed methanol economy and the technological advances in engine design for the utilisation of this fuel. This book will be of interest to researchers and policy makers interested in using methanol as the principal source of ready and stored energy in societal.

The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy.

Diesel-Electric Locomotives - Come along with us as we explore how diesel-electric locomotives actually work and penetrate the hush-hush world of locomotive fuel economy and energy efficiency.

(Added: Rating: ) Rate It. There are a couple of ways to think about this question. One is the overall number of Vehicles over the umber of miles of track, by the number of gallons of fuel consumed.

This gives out the “Ton - Mile” value. But the other way is the number of m. Locomotive fuel economy technologies and the energy efficiency performance measures kept confidential by the railroad industry.

Meeting railroad environmental challenges with alternative fuels and locomotive motive power options. Contents. For a given fuel volume. an LNG-fueled locomotive will have times the range of a CNG-fueled locomotive.

Assuming equal engine efficiencies, the diesel-fueled locomotive will have times the range as a CNG-fueled locomotive and times the range of the LNG-fueled locomotive for equivalent volumes of fuel storage.

Locomotive Tier 4 emissions regulations, compliance technologies, and their impact on fuel economy. Meeting railroad environmental challenges with alternative fuels and locomotive motive power options. Each Part presents a chapter on general steam locomotive development during the period (usually about 15 to 20 years), then a chapter that delves into the details.

Sections on “Fuels, Firing and Fuel Economy” detail efforts to improve these aspects of steam locomotive performance and focus on fuel developments and stokers. Locomotive fuel economy / by George H.

Baker Economical firing. Economical boiler feeding. Economical use of steam. Indeed, fuel management goes well beyond basic fuel conservation.” A newly published Wi-Tronix white paper on fuel management is instructive on why fuel management is important: “Among the primary jobs of railroad personnel responsible for managing locomotive fleets is ensuring that locomotives get fuel where and when they need it.• The U.S.

locomotive fleet grew during the period, f to 24, diesel-electric locomotives in service inwhile the freight car fleet remained relatively static at million cars in service. Inshipments of U.S. railway rolling stock totaled $ billion, with $ billion (percent) sold to the domestic market  Since I have been operating locomotives and trains for a living on a daily basis for over 25 years, and have to regularly check the fuel readings on the locomotive fuel tanks, I have a good idea of how much fuel they burn each day depending upon t.
