The report presents emissions data on three locomotive diesel engines, and uses these data in conjuntion with supplementary data on emissions, number of units in service, and annual usage to estimate emission factors and national impact. The emissions characterized included total hydrocarbons, light hydrocarbons, aldehydes, CO, CO2, NOx, O2, smoke, and particulate. In addition to the emissions measurements, sufficient engine operating data were taken to ensure that conditions repeated themselves adequately and that mass emissions could be calculated from the raw concentration data.
