    I remember watching a pair of 40s going through similar troubles, back in their final days, after being stabled for almost a month. Diesel locos, particularly of that generation, didn't like to be stood around doing nothing for extended periods.

    Cool video inversnecky, thanks for sharing it.

    Best, Steve

    Now that is what I call a spectacular showing! Also, environmentally friendly? What's that supposed to be? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    What are the clouds of white? Condensate, oil smoke, unburnt diesel? If it's mostly condensate, then not too environmentally damaging.
