Here are the last photos unless anybody want more detailed shots and I will send them to you if you drop me a PM.
This shows one of the consorts that is used to control the machine.
On the back is the start button and above the control keypad for the level crossing gates and the points at Port Talbot so the driver can stay in the cab and also doesn't have to stop and start the train, also it will also control the points as well. Next is the wipers controls so you can set one or both on at the same time. Then the emergency stop and finally the information panel which can be changed more of this later.
On the flat panel is first the parking brake then the desc control and this is set that only consort is in use at one time. Next the brake leaver which is now mainly used for parking the engine than stopping the engine. The washers and the sand buttons you should know all about. The neutral button is so the engine is out of gear. The direction leaver is one of these touch contact switches. Next the constant speed control where you want the engine to go at a set speed. The Vigilance button is a form of dead man button and if no controls are moved it will sound a buzzer and if not reset the engine brakes will go on. And the last lever is for the speed and dynamics braking. It has 12 notches for speed and again each time you push the leaver it will go one notch and if you pull it back the dynamics brakes will come on (very hard at that). In the middle of the leaver is the horn.
This the main display the driver will see.
The main ones for your information is the one in the near bottom right which is showing 0% this is where you see how many notches you are using but you can see that there is a 0 but the engine is doing 12.2 MPH ie the engine is costing down hill. The top right hand side is for the brakes and when fully on it is 4.6 Bar.The HD bar is green but when the dynamics brakes are put on this turns to red. The desk will show green for the one in use and red for the one out of use.
This is another lot of buttons as well and the buzzer for the vigilance control.
The colour lights for when using the remote control.
When I am driving the engine.
All the computers are/ will be fitted with a modem so any faults can be sorted away from the machine. Ie if you are on holiday you will be able to sort out the problems. Yes it will be possible to drive the engines using a remote computer as well. Another feature that might not go down so well as the engine performance fuel used will be recorded so it will be possible to tell the best and worst drivers as well.
There will be a good chance one of the engines that is just going to have its refit will be at the rail-feast at the NRM as they have requested (demanded) that one of them to be there, but the cab will have to be taken of to get it in there and then put back on again. They want it there so to show that Great Britain can still build the best and the most advanced engines in the world.
