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.
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.

either railtours, Empty coaching stock, light engine movements or freight
trains. A vast amount of footage comes from heritage railways, including
the Severn Valley railway, East Lancashire railway, West Somerset railway
and the Great Central railway. The list of locomotives on this video are:

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.

Baby Deltic engine start after revised coolant system installed
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
40145 Cold Start
Dave Peacock starts 40145 up in cold conditions, in readiness for a loco
Both 40145 and 50015 were moved to Buckley Wells, where 40145 was inspected
and cleared for running on the East Lancs Ambassador railtour, involving
two class 40s along the length of the ELR, followed by a non-stop run to
Edinburgh with 40145.
A video showing the loco move will be available shortly...
1975 Mercedes Benz 300D EXTREME -20F Cold Start Winter W115 OM617
((Look at my new cold start video, all the bugs are fixed))
I only paid 300 dollars for it, the guy thought it had a blown engine, but
it turned out the timing on the injector pump was way off. I ended up
taking the injector pump off and putting it on the right teeth, and doing
the drip test, and etc. It has rolled over twice now, it has finally just
broke in at around 230,000 miles. It runs great and I put about 45 miles a
day on it. Best diesel ever made in my opinion. Keep in mind it is VERY
cold sometimes in North Idaho, and this afternoon it was a cold day, and it
finally started. It starts way better in 30 degrees and up weather! :-)

Deltic D9019 Gordon Highlander - GCR Diesel Gala
British Rail Co-Co Diesel Electric Class 55 Deltic No. D9019 Gordon
Highlander was the Great Central Railways guest locomotive for their Diesel
Gala held from the 29th - 30th March 2014 but all didn't go to plan. The
day started with an elictrical fault on class 33 116 causing delays of
around 40 minutes. The the biggest blow to the day was the failure of the
Deltic. D9019 suffered an oil leak and as class 55's need thicker oil then
other diesels to run; GCR had no oil for the Deltic meaning it only ran on
two runs out of Loughborough: one TPO run and one passenger service.
This video features D9019 Gordon Highlander's only two runs on Saturday and
a clip of 37198 at Woodthorpe.
The Deltic should be back to running condition for day 2 of the gala
tomorrow as suitable oil has now been collected.
Thanks for Watching
