Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A gas turbine train, is a passenger train that uses one or more gas turbines as its main source of power. Few passenger trains use this system today, although there has been one recent prototype built by Bombardier Transportation. A gas turbine train typically consists of 2 power cars, and 1 or more intermediate passenger cars. In a gas turbine power car, a turbine engine, similar to a turboshaft engine, drives an output shaft that is in turn attached to a hydraulic or electric transmission which supplies power to drive the wheels.show more
