Deltic Twin Engine Start Up at Fishguard Harbour for the Western Wales Explorer
55022 starts up both Napier Engines in readiness to carry on working 1Z51 14:30 ROBESTON to CREWE. Whilst everybody decides at last minute to get their souvenir photos, I took a walk around the train to produce some study shots of the coaching stock used, and the EWS Livery Class 66 operated by DB Schenker. Included in this video are two shots of lorries using the port to show how close we were to the heart of operations. More videos from this trip coming shortly. Please also see the uploads by Robmasterman (Wales) & MG06ZT (Lickey Incline area) Please note the droaning sound you may hear from time to time was a fire engine filling the trains water tanks.
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 mark. 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. "Three Million hits" thank you all for the views.
