Some real 1Z99 ops:

Unsure if it still is in use, but 1Z99 was the highest priority in the UK railway system.

>> No.131765  

Well, I checked. AFAICS, the headcode 1Z99 is still in use, but 2Z99 has been retired. That one was given to line-clearing trains returning from an incident or otherwise not involved in line-clearing. They are now listed as freights of an appropriate class.

I think it gets trumped by 1X01, unless that's the reason for the 1Z99.

>> No.131795  

Hopefully, 1X01 will never need any 1Z99 attention, except for maybe a plough ahead.

This German site mentions a rather odd curiosity with the German class 232 diesel loco. If the ETS/HEP generator dies, the dynamic brakes will not work.

that's at least not the strangest thing i've ever heard. something similar, the P32ACDMs can't use their dynamic brakes when running on 3rd rail power.

>> No.131727  

If I got it right, the HEP generator also powers some of the Ludmilla's own systems and, when in Notch 8, feeds the traction motors along with the main generator.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iivpmRZhwyc It can do even better:) 2TE116 series is direct successor of TE109. 2TE116U has boosted 3600 HP version of 5D49.
Interesting fact, this engine design is about 50 years old and still quite actual, new versions of D49 even meet Euro-3 standards.

>> No.131761  

>>137158 -- Incidentally, there are also classes 241 and 242. I think both have 5D49M engines with ca. 4000-hp output.

Right, I forgot that some TE109s were remotorized with modernized D49 engines in 2000-s. Well, actually D49 can handle up to 300 HP per cylinder. For example, the most impressive D49 version was 1D49 equipped on (2)TE136 series, it was V20 engine with 6000 HP output (here I said a bit more >>131677). There also was 1-1D49 for TEP75 and TEP80 but it was more "light duty" because these were built for passenger service. And now there are only memories...
The most boosted version of D49 that is in service nowadays is 21-2D49, V12 3400 HP diesel with EFI for 2TE25K and 2TE25A.

The nice thing about the oil rush is that it has caused BNSF to dump a bunch of money into improvements on the Northern Transcon (read: GN) which would indirectly benefit the Empire Builder.

A month ago, an ICE-TD rammed a gate in Puttgarden. Apparently, the brakes wouldn't.

In case someone is wondering about the odd symbol on the trainset's nose, it is the current logo of DSB, the Danish State Railways, which has a baker's dozen TDs on hire until the end of this year.

With the Waratah order, they got 626 cars (78 sets + remaining spares). And it actually wasn't enough but the government was too cheap to order the extra 20 8 car sets needed. There were a few more but a set was partly destroyed due to an acid spill on the way to China.
Also, just to be extra off topic - the Waratah's alien eyes!
