Diesel Locomotive Diagrams, CN, 1928-59


Softcover (wire coil bound) book (2 section).

Subtitled: "Data sheets covering Canadian National diesel units operating 1928 to 1959 with representative photos"

This book has 280+ diagrams plus clearance drawings for standard and narrow gauge locomotives and equipment as well as an index by class and unit number. A large number of pages have black & white photos, which are also listed on the index pages.
Each sub-class has it's own diagram, detailing overall dimensions, horsepower information, railway assignments (i.e.: CN or GTW etc.), truck types, number of fans, dynamic brakes, steam or electric generators, roof top air tanks on GP passenger units, max. speed, min. operating curve, and on and on.
Find out when trucks were changed from four to six axle or vice versa and back again. This is an excellent reference when trying to date photos where modifications have been recorded on these data sheets.
In addition to photos from the LPD and Don Lewis' collections, many additional photos are from the Don McQueen collection and George Carpenter collections.
