VideoHere a multi gen set WDM2G pulls out of Swai Madhupur junction with a goods train. This is the latest ALCO, based on the WDM3D with it’s same under-frame and high-adhesion bogies. The single 3300 hp engine of the WDM3D has been replaced by three 800 hp “gensets” which can work individually in parallel. This means that one, two or three of the Gensets can be operated depending on the situation and power required, translating into tremendous energy-efficiency (two engines can be shut down while running light or idling). Looks only vaguely like the Indian ALCOs and more like American locomotives
I am of Indian descent and moved to the USA in Mid 1970's. Model Railroads and Model Remote Controlled Aircraft are my two hobbies both of which I have been pursuing since my childhood in India.
