DC Locomotives (C21-C25EMP)

Leverages a rich history of 7FDL diesel-engine performance coupled with microprocessor control

The “C Series” locomotives are designed for low weight per axle and configurable horsepower.

The 7FDL12 cylinders/EFI/ turbocharged engine and the BrightStar Micro Processor Control System with traction-motors temperature control provides high performance and reliability. The 7FDL engine is proven in operations at very high altitudes, above 4,000 meters, and temperatures from -50 ° C to + 50 ° C, withstanding highly cyclic thermal loads.
