Vintage Superior Engines & Compressors Model 65-LX-6
« on: September 19, 2017, 13:11:57 »
In 1946 Superior Engine & Compressor Company (marine engine manufacturers) produced an engine model # 65-LX-6.

One engine of this model was installed in a locomotive. That was the Ingalls Iron Works Model 4-S.

Were any engines of this or similar engine installed in tugboats ?

Firstly I would like to locate sound recordings of this engine in a tugboat or elsewhere.  I believe it was quite different to the normal loco diesel of the time. Where is a library of engine sounds?

Any  sites or book, publications, that feature the Superior Engines would be great.
