Week 30, Theme 38 – Powerful

These three Union Pacific diesel-electric locomotives were captured in intermodal service in the Mojave Desert of California.  Each locomotive weighs 426,000 pounds and carries 5000 gallons of diesel fuel.  The electric generator is powered by a 16 cylinder diesel engine.  Each of the 6 axles is driven by individual traction motors creating a total of 4400 horsepower.  These three locomotives “lashed” together generate 13,200 horsepower.  Now that’s “Powerful”!
