Although diesel locomotives first came to American railroads in the s, their use was confined to switch engines, and later to passenger train locomotives.

It wasn't until that the Electro Motive Division of General Motors (EMD) demonstrated that diesels could practically replace steam locomotives in heavy-duty service. A pioneer freight diesel, model "FT," toured the nation. DIESEL-ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES INTRODUCTION An understanding of the structure of a locomotive mechanically and electrically is essential to a person attempting to perform maintenance and repair services on it.

The reference text on which this subcourse is based is a broad presentation of locomotive structure and a basic outline of maintenance.

The diesel saga is still unfolding, and this title builds on previous works including the author's The Model Railroader's Guide to Diesel Locomotives, published in This, in turn, was a partial successor to the old Diesel Spotter's Guide series.
