      A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel l types of diesel locomotives have been developed, differing mainly in the means by which mechanical power is conveyed to the driving wheels.. Early internal combustion locomotives and railcars used kerosene and gasoline as their fuel. Rudolf Diesel patented his first compression-ignition. The first mainline diesel-electric locomotives were of Bo-Bo arrangement. As they grew in power and weight, from the EMD E-units used an A1A-A1A layout with six axles to reduce axle load, but only four of them were powered. After WWII, the British LMS ordered two prototype locomotives with some of the first Co-Co arrangements.

      A locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a a locomotive is capable of carrying a payload, it is usually rather referred to as a multiple unit, motor coach, railcar or power car; the use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter and Iron Highway).
