The diesel electric locomotive as a source of gaseous emissions is reviewed. Locomotive operation is outlined to provide an understanding of diesel engine application, operation, and controls. Methods of evaluating gaseous emissions are offered for consideration as industry standards. Present-day exhaust emission levels are presented. Specific recommendations are offered to the locomotive manufacturers, the railroads, and to governmental regulating bodies to effect improved exhaust emission levels.
