Will Soon Have Fourth Diesel With delivery of the fourth of its new Diesel engines expected within a -'-ort time, the Baltimore Ohio ·ailroad will operate the "National Jimited," New York-St Louis train, n both directions with these locomotives. One of the train's new engines has been in operation for a short time and already has demonstrated its speed. One day it picked up the train at Washington, Ind., more than an hour late because of delayed connections at St. Louis and arrived in Parkersburg on schedule. The Diesels will provide locomotion for the train between Washington and Washington, Ind., including movement on the steep grades of the Alleghonies where this type of power works at great efficiency. Unlike the Diesel units that arc being used in short, articulated trains during the last few years on other railroads, housed in the forward part of the leading car, the Baltimore Ohio's Diesel is exclusively a power unit, and can be used on any train of proper tonnage.
