Engines We Work On English Electric - RK3CT, CSVT, SVT, KT

English Electric - RK3CT, CSVT, SVT, KT

Hugely successful range of British heritage engines mass produced by the English Electric Company from the early 1960’s onwards and used widely for both the rail industry and stationary power generation.

Earlier KT engines were originally built with 2 valve cylinder heads and naturally aspirated produced 350BHP and as used to power British rail class 08 shunters. The range quickly developed with the increased rated SVT, CSVT and RK3CT engines incorporating 4 valve cylinder heads, turbochargers and charge air coolers to produce up to 1470BHP to 3300BHP, which were installed into the ‘workhorses’ of the British rail industry with Class 31, Class 37 and Class 56 diesel locomotives.

The various Class of locomotive are still widely used on the UK rail network by large freight operators namely Network rail, Colas, DRS and DB Schenker UK.

We're gonna take a little break but don't nobody go no where.
