The electrical equipment and performance of an articulated light-weight streamlined Diesel-electric train are described in this paper. Particular attention is given to the control, which provides full utilization of the available engine power for driving the train over a wide range of train speeds. Generators, motors, and auxiliary equipment are considered briefly, and the estimated train performance is given.
