Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Union Pacific Railroad's M-10002 was a diesel-electric streamliner train built in 1936 by Pullman-Standard with a prime mover from the Winton engine division of General Motors Corporation and General Electric generator, control equipment and traction motors. It was the UP's third streamliner, and the last turret-cab streamliner. It had two power cars, the lead, cab-equipped one fitted with a 1,200hp V16 Winton 201-A diesel engine and the second equipped with a 900hp V12 Winton 201-A that had been removed from the M-10001 when it was rebuilt. The two power cars were articulated together with a span bolster, giving them an effective wheel arrangement of B-B+B-B, but they were not articulated with the train and therefore formed the Union Pacific's first separable diesel locomotive.show more
