Tag: distributed power

In rail transport, distributed power (DP) refers to the physical distribution—at intermediate points throughout the length of a train—of separate motive power groups. Such ‘groups’ may be single units or multiple consists, and are remotely controlled from the leading locomotive. The concept of the distribution of motive-power was originally developed to permit the operation of longer trains where operational considerations or economics required it, however distributed power has since also been used under circumstances where it is desired to have motive-power at each end of a train simply for reasons of operational flexibility.
