    Some video and stills on the conversion of ex-DVT 82113 to a diesel hydraulic self propelled vehicle during 2018.

    This does beg the question as to why. (Apologies if answered in the video)

    What is it for?

    Interesting, wonder if it's provided any useful results?

    I don't see how it will give better energy retention than regen braking and a battery set. But that is the point of experiments after all

    Presumably if it is in a known NR-approved package it's that bit easier to move it round the network to accumulate testing data.

    If I remember, it was to investigate using that energy when the set moves off from a standing start which is when its at its least efficient and most carbon producing.
