CUTAWAY ENGINES

VARIOUS MANUFACTURERS

This very impressive cutaway of the front end of an American Locomotive Company (ALCO) Model 244 diesel engine with an air-cooled General Electric turbocharger is on display at the New York Museum of Transportation in Rush, NY, near Rochester. The level of complexity of this cutaway is very impressive, and it may have been done by ALCO for training use. The Model 244 engine was replaced in the ALCO product line by the Model 251 in the early 1950s. The cutaway EMD 567B engine to the right of the ALCO 244 is shown on our EMD cutaway engine page.

This sectioned front end of a Diesel engine was featured as a floor display at the Golden Age of Trucking Museum in Middlebury, Connecticut. This is the simplest type of cutaway, a straight cut right across the center of the engine, and it does a very effective job of showing the working parts. The engine was modified by high school students in the Diesel Department of Howell Cheney Vocational Technical School located in Manchester, Connecticut. They donated the engine to the museum in 2005 and the director of the museum points out that three of the ten students were girls!


We are sorry to note that the Golden Age of Trucking Museum closed on July 20, 2010.
