A single half-sized turbocharged deltic power unit also featured in the English Electric built Type 2 loco, designated as the Class 23. The result was a triangle, the cylinder banks forming the sides, and tipped by three crankshafts, one at each corner. One of features of the design engine was the way the crankshaft phasing was arranged to allow for exhaust port lead and inlet port lag. Proving successful, Deltic diesel engines became a common powerplant in small and fast naval craft. Smaller nine cylinder Deltic 9 engines were used as a marine engine, notably by minesweepers. While the Deltic engine was successful and very powerful for its size and weight, it was a highly-strung unit, requiring careful maintenance. The E.185 or Compound Deltic turbo-compound variant was planned and a single protoype was built in 1956 and tested in 1957.

Part-time season tickets and early morning cheap fares proposed, new ideas?Network Rail (NR) has offered an apology to passengers using its East Coast route from Kings Cross to the north.
Performance figures dipped to 83.4% on time services on the East Coast Main Line (ECML) from August to September after issues with the overhead wires at three locations.


The most recent punctuality figures are the lowest of all long distance routes and the density of trains now means that any delays are harder to recover from that a decade ago. Long distance train operators have a more demanding task to achieve punctuality targets as by definition, more disruption is likely the longer a train runs. But passengers seem to like the long distance East Coast services, whoever runs them as they give a good rating in the statutory satisfaction ratings so will they be happy with a NR apology? The Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) said that it welcomed “further government investment” in smart ticketing, but did not address the issue of part-time season tickets directly. Passenger Focus chief executive Anthony Smith welcomed the plans, which his organisation has long called for. The Transport Minister has also said that he will loom at rewarding passengers who avoid the busiest parts of the peak hours.
The DfT says it will soon be publishing a review of fares and ticketing but has abandoned plans for a super peak fare applicable to the busiest times and trains. The rail industry will be wondering what will be forced onto them by the DfT as ticket changes are complicated to introduce and complex for passengers to understand.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase your maximum bid amount. This was deemed to be required after many infrastructure failures causing cancellations and delaying trains over the last summer. The Rail Regulator has demanded a performance record of 92% from NR by the end of March 2014, or it has threatened to fine it up to ?75million.


But, NR blames the electrification of the ECML north of Peterborough 30 years ago ‘being done on the cheap’ by British Railways. Delays range from trespass, cable theft, suicides, landslips as well as signal and points failures. Whatever the answer, they will be more pleased with the decision that has been taken by ECT management to stop using automatic ticket barriers at Kings Cross. An ATOC spokesman said: “Smart cards and other types of electronic ticketing encourage passengers to travel by train by making it easier for them to buy tickets and use the network. He said: “This is good news for the 59% of commuters whose working hours don’t fit into the Monday to Friday pattern. History suggests that when the Government starts to meddle with fares and ticketing structures, it does not improve matters and revenue can suffer. From Stephenson's Rocket to British Rail Class 92 and beyond, explore the facts, information and anecdotes behind the steam, diesel and electric locomotives that built the age of the train.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Many would suggest that Network Rail has had a decade to recover the situation and carry out repairs or upgrades, but the case is that money has to be spent. The Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) singled out problems with drainage across the system, poor maintenance planning and a failure from the company to understand exactly what they own and exactly what state it's in.Taxpayers’ battleDespite East Coast Trains (ECT) and NR both being ‘owned’ by taxpayers, there is a bit of a battle going on over reliability as the Government launches the ECT franchising competition. We have long said that ticketing options need to reflect changing working patterns – and it is a good opportunity to put smarter ticketing to the test in bringing benefits to passengers.”Ticket numbersUnder 60% of commuters, it is suggested by the rail industry, travel five days a week with under six million men and 2 million women working part time reflecting a change in employment practises with more people working part time. This of course is nothing new as British Railways had what was called ‘Workmen’s Tickets’ in the 1960s for just such travel. We’ve lots of hints, tips and advice to help you find your way around, travel smoothly and arrive in style by train.
NR has said that it will spend a total of nearly ?250million rectifying the problems in the next few years.
The franchise has been operated by GNER and National Express, both of whom lost money on the operation. The Department for Transport (DfT) has been instructed by the Government to return ECT to the private sector before the next election in May 2015.
