I don't know how long it lasted in this livery. BR A Miscellany of Electric & Diesel Power No.1 (mins) Over the years, we have amassed a vast collection of archive cine-film from a variety of owners.

Quite a lot has been used in our volumes but there is still considerable footage that remains unused and unseen because it either did not fit in with the “story theme” of our volumes or we were unaware of the locations.

It is a shame. The Liveries of the B.R. Standard Diesel Electric Shunters in Colour ( - ). An electro-diesel locomotive (also referred to as a dual-mode or bi-mode locomotive) is a type of locomotive that can be powered either from an electricity supply (like an electric locomotive) or by using the onboard diesel engine (like a diesel-electric locomotive).For the most part, these locomotives are built to serve regional, niche markets with a very specific purpose.

The British Rail Class 74 was an electro-diesel locomotive that operated on the Southern Region of British Railways, rebuilt from redundant Class 71 locomotives in the late s.

An electro-diesel locomotive is one that can operate either from an electrical supply, such as overhead catenary or (in this case) an energised third rail, or from an onboard diesel engine.

The British Rail Class 73 is a British electro-diesel locomotive. The type is unusual in that it can operate from the Southern Region's / V DC third-rail or an on-board diesel engine to allow it to operate on non-electrified routes.

This makes it very versatile, although the diesel engine produces less power than is available from the third-rail supply so the locomotives rarely stray. Get this from a library. The electro-diesels: an illustrated history of Classes 73 and [C J Marsden]. The book contains more than high quality colour images of second generation rolling stock set out by class of electric or diesel multiple units and locomotives, ranging from 4 SUBs and EPBs through Hastings Diesel units to Class 73 Electro-Diesels, a total of fifteen classes all told.

The Rhaetian Railway Gem 4/4 is a two member class of metre gauge Bo′Bo′ electro-diesel locomotives operated since by the Rhaetian Railway (RhB), which is the main railway network in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. The class is so named under the Swiss locomotive and railcar classification system.

According to that system, Gem 4/4 denotes a narrow gauge electro-diesel engined. The remaining five builds emerged from Eastleigh in the subsequent months and by the end of it had been proved that a dual power locomotive was possible and practical.

The Southern Region's CM&EE applied a unique set of design codes to all diesel and electric locomotives native to the Southern Region, the electro-diesels being classified.

I'm sure some 73s also came up on some demolition trains after complete closure as well, though with just hp diesel power these must have been severely tested by the Broadstone and Corfe Mullen Bank.Under diesel power each diesel engine powers a MITRAC TG A alternator, (output of kVA @ rpm) Power output is reduced from 6, hp ( MW) (including HEP) in electric mode to 4, hp ( MW) in diesel mode; under diesel power the same tractive effort curve is maintained up to around 25 km/h (16 mph) (assuming 2, hp ( MW.
