An Investigation into the Application of Gas Turbine Power To Railway Traction 630140

An investigation into the practical application of the gas turbine to railroad traction, employing a particular powerplant arrangement, was initiated by the Mechanical Engineering Div. of the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada 1956, and has been continued with limited effort since that time. The system involves the use of steam, and promises advantages over conventional gas turbine arrangements. Some of the experimental results and experience gained to date from this study are discussed, with special in reference to potential future development in this area.
