The EMD 567 is a line of large medium-speed diesel engines built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division. This engine, which succeeded Winton's 201A, was used in EMD's locomotives from 1938 until its replacement in 1966 by the EMD 645. It has a bore of 8 1⁄2 in (216 mm), a stroke of 10 in (254 mm) and a displacement of 567 cu in (9.29 L) per cylinder. Like the 201A, the EMD 645 and the EMD 710, the EMD 567 is a two-stroke cycle engine. It is a V engine with an angle of 45° between cylinder banks (the 201A was 60° between cylinder banks; 45° later proved to be significant when EMD subsequently adapted the road switcher concept for most of its locomotives, and which required the narrower (albeit taller) engine which 45° provides). The 710, 645, and 567 are the only two-stroke engines commonly used today in locomotives.
Visually, the 567C may be distinguished from earlier models by the presence of round (instead of square) handholes.
The NW2 is a EMD 12-567 V12
As with all 567 motor sounds the install has to have very good speaker and amplifier configured. The motor is just too quiet otherwise.
