View all copies of this ISBN edition:

When it first appeared in 1967, the Diesel Spotter's Guide by Jerry A. Pinkepank brought much-needed organization to the sport of diesel spotting in North America. Subsequent guides have covered the evolution of the diesel-electric, including Diesel Era's The Contemporary Diesel Spotter's Guide, 2000 edition and the 2008 edition. Now nearly 50 years after the guide was originally published, authors Louis A. Marre and Paul K. Withers have teamed again to update The Contemporary Diesel Spotter's Guide. While the external changes and customers have been fewer in the past eight years, EPA regulations have impacted locomotive engineering in ways we have never seen before. While all the manufacturers of new locomotives are covered ("new" is considered locomotives built on new frames), the nominal starting date is 1984 for Electro-Motive Division of General Motors locomotive designs that featured the 710 series of prime movers. For General Electric locomotives, the starting date is 1987 and the introduction of the Dash 8 line of models. A recap of all locomotives sold in North America between 2008 and 2014 is also provided. The year 2015 update will help you identify diesel locomotives from such spotting features as hood shape, truck type, and the location and number of fans, louvers, and doors. Offered in our standard 6" x 9" size for easy carrying in the field, this 156-page, perfect-bound book contains more than 250 color photographs. It is a must for railfan and model railroader libraries alike.
