While I know this article does not discuss railroad applications I had a serious flash back when I read it:

F-M is mentioned in the article BTW.

Not a bit sure that F-M "had it right", not JUMO, either (diesel OP aviation engine), but a lot of people like F-Ms, so no call to say "they got it wrong". Sometimes suspect Kipling got it right - "There are nine and sixty ways...".
