Indiana Harbor Belt Gen-Set at Burns Harbor, Indiana.

Mainline applications for Gen Set diesels are comparatively rare.

A gen set is a computer-optimized multiple-engine diesel electric designed for very  low emissions, and typically used for switching.

Indiana Harbor Belt gen-set works east at Burns Harbor, Indiana.

Although it was a dull afternoon, the locomotive’s brilliant orange paint made for a dramatic subject.

Working with a short telephoto, I aimed to emphasize the unusual shape of the Gen Set locomotive, panning it slightly to offset the cluttered industrial background.
