A colorful and impressive photographic overview of classic diesel engines Over the past 30 years or so, many changes have taken place on Britain's railway system—none more so than in the 1980s and 1990s, with the withdrawal of many classes of diesel locomotives, thus cutting down greatly on the number of locomotive-hauled passenger trains. However, although classes such as Deltics, Class 40s, 45s, and 50s have long been withdrawn, many examples of these classes have been preserved, and over the last few years have been seen on the main lines in charge of special enthusiasts' trains. Coupled with the withdrawals of many classes of freight locomotive and the disappearance of much infrastructure, the changes become very noticeable. This book sets out to show a great many of the now "classic" locomotives in their everyday work of yesteryear, but also some of the many specials they can be seen on today.

Adlard Coles Book Of Diesel Engines

The Adlard Coles Book of Diesel Engines is aimed at boatowners rather than experienced mechanics. In clear, jargon-free English it explains how a diesel engine works, how to look after it, and takes into account developments in engine technology. The book explains how the engine uses simple processes to covert fuel to power, and then looks at the various sub-systems that allow those processes to take place. She also advises on tools, winterizing and provides hints, tips and helpful fault-finding tables. Systems covered include: fuel, air, cooling, oil, electrical, propeller and transmission and control. This fifth edition has been thoroughly updated and illustrated with new full-colour photos and diagrams. In particular the Common Rail Injection System is covered, which governs how the fuel system is constructed, combined with the use of electronics (as opposed to mechanics) to control it thereby meeting the need for cleaner, greener engines to meet emissions regulations.

W. J. V. Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most widely respected railway photographers whose images are almost instantly recognisable from their unsurpassed technical accomplishment and the skill of their composition. The first volume, illustrated in both mono and colour, concentrated upon Anderson's steam photography, whilst the second volume, illustrated largely in colour, featured diesel traction. This new book, which is predominantly illustrated in colour throughout, draws upon the large number of unpublished images that did not feature in the original book, and portrays the Scottish Region during the years from 1960 through to around 1980. At the start of the period, Scottish Region was still predominantly steam operated with countless classes of locomotive that predated the Grouping of 1923. By the late 1970s, Scottish Region, as elsewhere, was dominated by Rail Blue, but there was still a sufficient variety of locomotive type to draw enthusiasts to the country.
