Six piston three cylinder supercharged two-stroke diesel.

The British truck manufacturer Commer fitted this fascinating engine into many of their trucks and vans. I can still recall from my childhood the really unusual sound these things made. As I understand it, they had a reputation for great torque and uncharacteristic reliability for the period.

I'm guessing that my desire to hear a 6-pack of R4360's at take-off is an unreasonable one, too...
since there are only 2 B-36's (and the 1 freighter variant) left in the world and they are all in museums, I would say no, you are not going to hear that anytime soon

they all were scrapped really fast because the engines were also used in a SAC area refueling tanker that refueled B-52's during operation chrome dome in the late 50's and early 60's

Roger that. 500 car, 2000 passengers. Goes from Vancouver Island to Vancouver (Tsawwassen, B.C.). Cruise at 19 knots, burns about 24,000 liters per 18 hr. day.
