Default Seen this one yet?

This is a pretty good video worth watching. Someone caught an NS engine running away on its own oil after blowing a turbo, I guess? I'm not a mechanic so I don't know, but here's the video:

That would be pretty wild to see in person. Thanks for sharing Derek.

Why didn't they just the engine down? The only thing I could think of is personnel safety, but you can see that at least one of the crew members was inside the cab for first quarter of the video, so evidently it wasn't that dangerous?

I've never worked on locomotive, but I have worked in a ship's engine room and if we were burning oil like that it would have been an immediate no questions asked emergency shut down.

I heard that maybe the diesel engine was running away on its own.

That one will make it to Roanoke to rot with about 100 Dash8's and a couple Dash9's

I'm no mechanic but I think once it starts burning its own oil, the only way to shut it down would be to block off the air to it. I'm not sure how you would go about that on a locomotive. Lol.

Usually cut the air supply to shut it down, can cut off the fuel supply to if needed. Once they run on their own oil, it's hard to shut them down.

Several references in this thread to locomotives running on their own oil. As opposed to running on another locomotive's oil?

Fine. Burning oil that they're not supposed to be burning, Jim.

Don't you have some pictures to level?

Midnight Oil, appropriate LOL, BTW Holden [GMH Australia ] has just launched the Holden Commodore in the US as a Chev SS. An earlier model is shown in this shot.
