Its not a new idea, the most novel incarnation was used by the germans as an aero engine during WW2.
It was a 6 cylinder, 12 piston supercharged 2 stroke diesel.
There is a better description here Junkers Jumo 205.

The same type of engine was used in the UK for commercial road vehicles by Tillings Stevens, known as the TS3.
There is a whole host of pictures and schematics here, Commer TS3 & Two Stroke Diesels, this is also good TS3 again.

It was also used by the british army in an armoured troop carrier, can't remember the name.

And finally, this is worth a look Napier Deltic, too complicated to explain. (Click on the image to see it work)

Detroits don't use opposing pistons as valves though, just standard poppet valvegear and a rootes blower to scavenge the cylinders.

My N47 Beemer may need one of those one day, sounds good for a diesel ...

Runs on petrol if needed, but always Compression Ignion I guess. Interesting crank and pivots on someof those pics. Knew about 2 strokes, but not that crank and pivot double piston malarkey ....

Good post

Now there's a sound I remember well we used to live near the main line when I was a kid and could hear the Deltics setting off from west gate station awesome sound.
