Cold start locomotive

Kinda neat, found this while watching the snowplow videos I posted. A little long, but I always like the way diesel locomotives sound.

It only cranked the first couple of seconds.

Locomotives have 2 stroke diesels, so they sound a little different.

thats a nice fleet. it must be nice to work for a real railroad.

we have a couple gp40-2's and they dont start worth a chit when its cold. ive had to open all of the bleeder valves on one bank of the engine to release all compresion on one side (so it would even crank) and use starting fluid on the other bank.

the correct way to start them is you open all the pit ****s (one on each cylinder) and crank the engine several times to blow any water out of the cylinders also called blowqing them down then go back and close them all. prime the fuel pump then hold the lathe shaft to 100 and crank it over.

we have some old old old (1960's) gp35's and they bellow white smoke when its below freezing

Are you commenting on my fleet? um, I don't work for a railroad, but am a fan of trains, and do some work at the local marshalling yard/repair shops from time to time, and spend coffee time and lunch watching the goings on.

Blowing them down....ARRRR...blow them down!!!!
