Default Diesel Power - Magazine 1940s

Hi

Looking for a copy of an article in: Diesel Power, Volume 24, 1946. Pages 588-589, 614

which covers the Ingalls 4-S diesel locomotive.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingall...ite_ref-GL_2-3 at the end.

I think this mag still in production but it is the 1946 edition that I want. Who can help or advise where I may locate.

Thanks

Charles Harris

Charlie, I will look for the 1946 Issue you seek but, I don't think my scattering of Diesel Power mags includes many from 1946. However volume 19 of Diesel Engine catalog (1954) lists Superior's locomotive engines and shows the model 65-LX-8 in the horsepower range indicated on the Wikipedia site. wiki shows the engine as a v-8 but no v-8 engines are shown in the Superior listing--the closest in HP is the 65-LX-8, a straight 8 of 12 3/4 bore x 15 stroke, delivering 1600-1750 HP @ 600-660 RPM. The engine is pictured.

Hi Enginenut2

Thanks for the great info.

Fingers crossed you have the 1946 mag.
Is it possible to let me have a copy of the mag article from 1954 for Superior engines ?
I live in New Zealand and difficult for me to find such magazines.
Catch me on swchuck at gmail dot com

Regards
Charles Harris

Diesels are not really my thing, but for several tears old magazines were...
Have you checked the NY State Corporation Commission to find out if Diesel Publications, Inc, Lexington Ave, NYC, publisher per a 1942 issue, merged into some firm that may have archived copies?? (the present Diesel Power is automotive, started 2006 or so)...
Do you check book sites like Abebooks, Amazon etc that include back issues of trade magazines in their inventories??
In years past there was a procedure to put a "want" on Ebay...and "wants" are free on Craigslists...
Try the NYC pub lib system, who (which?) probably kept bound annual volumes, now maybe on microfilm; they may not be able to copy per copyright problems, but may advise commercial sources...
I'm assuming you've tried the back issue dealers that come up on Google...
Walt Miller's Autolit is apparently selling inventory (a real tragedy, they were like the old Bettman archives) but per the website still taking inquiries...Walt thought highly of everything he had, but he had it when no one else did)...
I see youve been on other websites; do you keep a list of where you've tried so you can re-inquire every so often??
Various online archives of trade magazines've sprung up; checked any??
There're copies out there; it just takes some leg work (now finger-on-keyboard work)...

Ahh, memory retrieval still works, just slo-w-e-r...
In the Vintage/Antique trade back issue magazines come under Ephemera---all kinds of paper/cardboard etc items, fragile, delicate stuff.....
A batch of dealers should come up on Google, or you may have to Google Vintage magazines or Antique magazines...
I assume you're on Tomm and HCVA on that other island north of you...

Hi Bud

Have got my fingers working now following up on your ideas and especially the terminology. I live in New Zealand and some of the terminology different.

BTW the sentence: 'I assume you're on Tomm and HCVA on that other island north of you... ' not sure what this refers to.

Thanks

Charles

sswcharlie, I think TOMM is the Old Machinery Magazine and HCVA or HCVC is Historic Commercial Vehicle Club-both Aussie organisations/publications. More to the west of here than north, I think.

OOPS---my geography teacher'd never forgive me...I was thinking you were southerly of that other island Abel Tasman stumbled across, but now I see you're aways out there by yourselves....many thxx for reminder...
Yes, correct on both counts; both have online forums that I have trouble remembering to check occasionally...

Charles,

I went through my pile of them, and I unfortunately can not find it. I could swear I had it - I can even picture the article in my head. I will keep digging, I may be thinking of something I have digital already.
