This article presents the analysis of emissivity of diesel locomotives operating in Poland. In the last years a significant part of the rail vehicles have been subjected to remotorization consisting in replacement of the combustion engine with the new generation model. This leads to the reduction of toxic constituents emission of exhaust gases from the railway vehicles. The analysis was conducted bearing in mind the histograms of locomotives loads in normal work conditions. It allowed to assess the ecological benefits of these engines during their operation.
