Big engines ...

Interesting to see that big players are still using cast iron heads and
crankcases - and, come to that, piston engines - in the 21st century.

I'm currently reading "The Death Of Oil" by Paul Roberts. A very sobering
read for anyone who likes engines or even electric light in their home ...
Currently available from all good bookshops.
HINT - a good Christmas present for the thinking engineer ;o))

Actually,EMD using case iron for the crankcase is an innovation as previously they used fabricated steel. Possibly as this generation engine is capable of replacing two of the older generation 2 stroke types, weight is part of the traction component. The engine is certainly a leap in piston displacement per cylinder- 1010 ci, as against the current 645 % 710 2 strokes.
