37419 COLD START
37419 Trying it's best to start in very cold conditions on the 8th February
2007 at Old Oak Common Depot LONDON UK.
The temperature on this date was -01c - 30.21F .
The power unit is clearly COLD hence the reason it is struggling to
start.It does start once the cylinder temperature rises around the 1:12 min
So,Please, Please stop telling us all how cold it is in your country this
video is not about that.All comments made about how cold it is in your
country will be deleted,we are not interested.Thanks.
"One Million hits" thank you all for the views.

The first start of the engine after the coolant system has been modified to
work with a Serck hydrostatic system. Answers on a postard to the follwing
questions; 1) What's the bell?, 2) Why does the engine pick up in two
stages?, 3) Why does it shut down again?
No prizes and no flippancy! infoATthebabydelticproject.co.uk
Deltic start up
Class 55 deltic "Alycidon" fires up at the Great Central railway on the
UK diesel locomotive compilation 2010-2013 - With Deltics, Westerns & Warships + many more
Firstly i must apologise my first attempt at uploading this video last
night, i forgot to watch it back and didn't relalise i had some technical
difficulties with it. So i had to upload it again. So my sincere apologies
to the people who commented or put a like on the old one. Hopefully these
problems have now been eradicated.
On to the video it is a compilation video of all things diesel in the last
three years. Every year i always seem to upload a compilation video on
steam but never diesel. Since i have acquired a lot of footage of varying
different classes of diesel locomotive. I thought i would create this
video. I have included this weekends railtour involving D1015 Western
Champion, where i captured hear arrivng and departing out of Birmingham New
Street with the Maybach Meanderer.
All the clips you see are either from the mainline, with locos hauling
either railtours, Empty coaching stock, light engine movements or freight
trains. A vast amount of footage comes from heritage railways, including

and the Great Central railway. The list of locomotives on this video are:

Union Pacific in-cab ride
Thanks to a good friend, I got the opportunity to hop inside a Union
Pacific locomotive type, C45ACCTE. The train went north along side the I-15
for the most part and continued north for 50 miles. The locomotive I was in
was released in service in August 2011, it is a much newer one and
apparently according to the crew inside, a much quieter one also.
For anyone who has problems with me posting this due to violations of
whatever blah blah blah, know that I was invited on board and asked to film
from the inside. They told me it was ok just as long as I don't film the
controls. Now, that being said, stop asking me to take it down, and telling
me Im violating code who gives a crap. Thank you.

D9000 & "The Deltic Deliverance" - 30th November 1996
Certainly a day to remember, but for the wrong reasons. After years of
waiting, a Deltic returned to the main line! What a day! The long haul by
86 from Kings Cross at daft o'clock, the joy of seeing D9000 tie on the
stock at Edinburgh Waverley, the smell of the Exhaust filling the coach through the many open
windows as the train accelerated through one of the Calton tunnels, the
thrill of experiencing passenger haulage behind a Deltic at speed again,
then the shared disappointment when it all came to a grinding halt at
Berwick upon Tweed.
NB: In the video some of the audio has been suppressed due to wind noise
and extreme profanity and views expressed by some of the upset travelers.
37240 Very Cold Start
Class 37 No 37240 is started on a very cold Sunday at Llangollen River
Sidings. The English Electric Type 3, owned and operated by the Llangollen
Diesel Group, has just had the rings on her B3 piston changed. The
impressive amounts of smoke are typical of cold EE engines. The lack of
white smoke when the engine has warmed up and is put under load shows that
the new piston rings have done the trick. Enjoy!
August 2010 UPDATE: The loco has been overhauled in 2010 and is now
resplendent in 1960's-style BR blue livery and original body condition with
headcode windows and buffer beam skirts.
