Cummins Engines for Rail Applications

Cummins knows the rail industry is a unique and specialized market, so not only do they offer a full line of power ratings but also models that have been customized specifically to meet industry demands, like low-profile designs for easier undercar servicing and manufacturing “horizontal engines” to allow for high-speed DMUs.

Hauling freight has its own set of demands and Cummins rises to the challenge offering a comprehensive range of high-performance, low-maintenance diesels in a wide range of horsepower including V12 and V16 configuration as well as ratings of up to 2100 rpm.
