HOTSTART manufactures a line of electric and diesel powered engine heating systems designed to allow idling locomotives to be shut down and easily restarted, even after days sitting in freezing weather. HOTSTART’s electric powered heaters are used where an external AC power source is available. HOTSTART’s diesel-powered APU provides even more flexibility by allowing an idling locomotive to be shut down at any location where electrical service is unavailable. HOTSTART engine heating systems are small enough to mount inside any locomotive car body or walkway. Equipping a locomotive with a HOTSTART block heater eliminates the problems with idling including wasted fuel and oil, wet-stacking, emissions, noise and engine wear.
