I can not belive GM sold off EMD last year! EMD makes diesel locos for major railroads you think that would be a good money maker. Everyone is selling off stuff or closing stuff down these days.

speaking of emd

i have to use those things everyday,they still work like even after 30+ years of service....think about it....16 cylinders ,2 turbos, each cylinder 645 cubic inches,2500 hp at 900rpm and thats wide open...of only our cars could last as long....

Since the engine do not have to run very fast they wear less and last longer like my Farm Tractor which max speed is 1400 rpm and the diesel locos are even slower than that!
