Work week at Didcot is when members take a week off work, and come to work on a specific project. My work week is usually spent doing the normal running maintenance on our AEC/GWR Diesel Railcar. I thought that while the side panels were off, that you might like to see some of the mechanics, I know I have posted some before, but these are a little more detailed

Thanks again, are the gearboxes air or electrically operated?

Everything on the Railcar is operated by EP valves. Gear change, forward reverse select, and even the throttle. There is something else very special about her, regarding the development of todays units, but at the moment I don't have any pictures of the driving cab, as I forgot to take them during work week
