The PL42AC is a diesel-electric 4-axle locomotive built by Alstom. The power rating of the PL42AC locomotives is about 4200 hp total for tractive effort and head-end power. At the time of delivery this locomotive was considered the most advanced passenger diesel locomotive in the United States. It uses very precise traction computers for tractive effort and WABCO's EPIC II braking system, along with an E-7 wheel slide device, made by Wabtec, preventing flats spots on the wheels through software and hardware. It has an Intelligent Display Unit (IDU) based on Bombardier Transportation technology from which an engineer or technician can run tests to determine if a specific system is operating correctly.
