More Info The Fairbanks - Morse O.P. Diesel Engine for Locomotive Power
The Fairbanks - Morse O.P. Diesel Engine for Locomotive Power - 1950s Brochure. In the year 1933, Fairbanks-Morse engineers undertook to design and build a new kind of internal combustion engine, an engine which would join the 56-year old opposed-piston idea with the 42-year-old principle of diesel combustion. Several years of development were required before the engineers were satisfied that this new diesel was ready to take its place in the Fairbanks-Morse line. Today's Fairbanks-Morse Opposed Piston, the Model 38, has been improved and refined, but the basic design remains unchanged.
