Built by the National Railway Equipment Company, the clean and efficient Genset switcher sets the standard for environmental friendliness on the modern rails. This diesel engine emits 80% fewer pollutants into the air than similar engines, uses far less fuel, and meets the government’s most stringent regulatory noise level requirements.
Three separate 700-h.p. generator sets (or Gen-sets) power this unique locomotive, each towered by its own exhaust stack. These engines are designed to operate independently, in a pair, or all three at once depending on current needs of the loco. They also utilize an ingenious “sleep time” technology: when idling, only one of three engines stays active, and when resting for too long all three engines shut down automatically at a pre-programmed time.
