    LOCOMOTIVE by BRIAN FLOCA About the Book In the s, the steam locomotive was new, exciting, and sometimes even frightening —a large, smoking machine that allowed people to travel faster than they had ever traveled before. As railroads spread, locomotives changed how quickly the country. “I look forward to using Walter Simpson’s new book, Diesel-Electric Locomotives, as a text for our Railroad Mechanical Practicum course. The book is a good fit because, like Walter, many engineering students today are not only interested in how diesel-electric locomotives work but also are extremely passionate about energy and energy conservation.”.

    The car might be king today but thousands of devoted writers have ensured the railroads will never be forgotten. We have plucked from obscurity 30 fascinating books - most of them out-of-print - about railways from Cairo to New South Wales to Yosemite encompassing engineering, history, industry, photography, policing and a famous politician’s final journey. Locomotive is back with the latest trends, statistics, and inside stories from the exciting world of locomotives. This year’s edition pays tribute to the longtime locomotive builder ALCO, 50 years after the company ceased production.
