PANTERA! Holy crap, I forgot how powerful they crank up the bass and bass drum, just made my chest vibrate. Pantera was awesome.

Interesting. So have most of them been scrapped then? What a waste of money!

if one of the 3 engines in a genset went down, suddenly you had a locomotive only operating at 66% of its already limited capacity. And that happened a lot

Barr Yard had some of the bigger ones with dynamics. Rougemere had 4 of the smaller ones. Selkirk had some 6 axle versions they used on the hump. All of them were pretty gutless and you almost never saw one not paired up with a regular GP or SD

the class ones only bought them because local governments were giving out $ to be used towards them. As soon as the stipulations were up, they tossed them quick. I think UP and BNSF were the last ones to use them. CP, NS, and CSX purged theirs all around 2016-2019

The cummins engines used in most of them were not well-suited to the rigors of railroad service

the genset concept is all but dead. having 3 separate diesel engines come on and offline in a single locomotive was too unnecessarily complicated

Four of them on X500 back in August of 2007: http://railroadfan.com/gallery/displayimage-37604.html

I used to hear a lot about gensets 10-15 years ago, but I feel like that terms isn’t kicked around much anymore. Were those units just not very popular?
