Learning more about Helicon Focus; in photo at left, should have added more photos
to the stack, aft of the beacon on cab roof. Horn is a blur, but is barely visible.

@Romet.Lyytsepp - Regarding the O.P. engine design; I believe that engine type was originally used in submarines (or ships), and adapted for use in rail locos. They may have been reliable, but the US market was so dominated by GM-EMD (with government meddling mixed in) that the other manufacturers were gradually driven out. I've read that the FM locos could pull very well, as did Alco and Baldwin products (the latter two still have examples in use by smaller railroads, long after the builders went out of business).

@Romet.Lyytsepp - I think that may almost be the mentality.
