note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet service effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

There are now more than seventy-five (75) BOXCAB pages;
see the full INDEX, now on a separate page.

PAGE INDEX

  Introduction to the 1936 IR Boxcab catalog (follows).

  List of Units.

  Complete Text.

Now that I have a flatbed scanner going, I will reproduce the photographs in the catalog shortly (no more excuses).

Although there is no copyright notice anywhere in the issue, I want it perfectly clear that this material comes directly from the TRAIN SHED CYCLOPEDIA issue, edited only minimally.

113 {I-R logo} DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES IN SERVICE

The first successful Diesel engine for loco-
motive service in the U.S.A. was developed
by the Ingersoll-Rand Company in 1923,
and the first locomotive sold was to the
Central R. R. of NJ in 1925.
  To date a total of 113 locomotives powered
by Ingersoll-Rand Diesel engines have been
sold. Each and every one of these locomotives
is operating today.
  It is the outstanding success of these loco-
motives in economy and reliability over a
period of ten years of actual service that has
made the Diesel-Eelectric locomotive a gener-
ally accepted type of railroad motive power.

This book is a record of
the 113 Ingersoll-Rand
Diesel-Electric locomo-
tives in operation today.
   These engines have been
in operation for an average
period of 5 years and 9
months. The oldest has been
in operation for 10 years
and 3 months; the newest has
just been placed in service.
