Diesel Locos in "Winter" conditions...

Recommended Posts

I had a nightmare trip that day, snow and ice got into one of the traction motors of the 67 and caused it to flashover, could only muster 40mph max out if it!!


Since the famous 'wrong type of snow' winter I thought the lessons had been learnt about snow ingress to traction motors.

Wintry conditions even though it was taken in August.  I hope no one minds that it's an electric.
