  1. I should have thought a little longer before putting my comment. Either first hand or through photos I’m used to the proportions of a 16 cylinder engine. When I see a 12 sitting on the shop floor, right away you’re thinking “there is room for more”. Actually, I’m willing to gamble, the railroads are pretty happy with 4 less power assemblies to deal with. Should be some fuel savings too.
    Thanks Paul. :-)

  2. I guess it’s enough for now, there are some twin turbo 6000hp GE’s on CSX though.

  3. I find it curious when these 12 cylinder 4400hp engines have proven themselves that there has not been a revival or push for more horsepower.
