Or can you just not hear diesel locomotive engines knock?
I can't answer your question, but if you post it in the Locomotives section in the Trains Magazine forum, there are knowledgeable people that can help you. Since this forum is titled Trains.com, it seems like it would be the place for general discussion, but it is not. Most of the general discussion is in the Trains Magazine forum. Good luck.
