For most diesel-electric locos, diesel engines first run a generator and that electricity is fed to traction motors

Currently, EMD SD90 (USA), is world's most powerful diesel loco

Traction = ~ 850 kN

India's most ubiquitious WDM2/3 diesel locos have traction 200-320 kN

Search for "Indian Railways" in www.train-sim.com I created some Train Sim locos there!

I know I am answering after about 4 years - but still. The Train engine in which I travelled (and learnt to drive?) had 2600 bhp in which 180 was used for the engine itself, 16 cylinders, and consumed 400 litres for 100 kms with 25 liters for idling for an hour. the cylinder size was "about the size of our (wheat)flour dabba (a medium sized bucket - about 10 litres)" no torque figures available. Will post along with pics later.

Till then.. cheers..
