MONDAY, NOVEMBER BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIEU NEWS J%h-Speed v Hi^h Powered Locomotives Feature RaiIways' Comeback Iron Horse Snorts Defiance to Rivals in Transportation Race By CHARLES f. A. MANN NEA Service SpttUl Correspondent SAN FRANCISCO.—Par from being headed for the scraphcap, the Iron Hor£3 Is coming back, stronger than ever, with new blood and sinew foi the transportation race. An amazing variety of new high-speed, high-powered locomotives Is being built to heul 70- mile-an-hour freight and lOO-mlle- an-hour passenger trains, within the next few months, the railroad? will introduce some of the most startling developments in power that the rails have seen in 100 years. Some of these rail monsters will yo 2000 miles if necessary without refueling. New turbo-electric giants arc being built for service for the first, time on the American continent. They will be capable of running 600 miles without Uikirw on water. Artists are b'usy dolling up the new lightweight passenger locomotives with paint jobs and rakish lines which the auto manufacturers well maj cmj In sirup contrast to the condition of a few years ago, when practically no locomo- lives were being built, the Southern Pacific alone hns on .order 10 hugu articulated consolidated locomqtlv? which will bu the largest in th? world.

And electric power enthusiasts have already mapped out 20 regions in which they believe electrification may be extended advantageously The Diesel streamliners which created such a sanssTVion less than a year ago' are already, evolving. Their Diesel power plants have evolved Into separate locomotives capable of Using "unhitched" from ihe rest of the train at will. The larger Diesel plants are no longer built with the power mount- ed in one of lh> coaches, and this Arkansas^ .type seems destined for short-haul " Scarcely had the. contest bctwean steam and Diesel power gotten under, way, .when along cam3 General Electric and Union Pacific, with! word that they are buildino a tur- bo-electric'giant which will hit the rails early next year.
