Oh gawd, all those pacers in one spot. Hope Victor hasn't got any contacts in Bomber Command
The Romanian Engines were made under License same as Vickers were. Several groups made a combined straight LDA head purchase some years ago when you could get heads off of 6LDA DH and DE shunters with less than 1,000 hours. Three heads we bought were installed and have done several thousand hours already. Only difference was metric threads for the rockers etc so we got nearly new castles for those as well. Rocker oil feeds and drains banjos were BSP threads. At that time plenty of liners and turbos in the stores. Brake equipment they used was the same base Okerlion design but had different castings but still recognisable as FD1 and FV3 etc Plenty of LDA twin bank engines around but they had more hours and wear and tear.
I imagine he is saving the empty beer bottles to make Molotov cocktails
There are some 'handy lads' round the Keighley area, those Cummins and Voith parts will be quite attractive.
Empty Laphroaig bottles, surely?
The way things are going with this 'stay at home' business there will be another emptybottle tonight. #1 son will be doing our weekly shop tomorrow and I've made sure a litre is on the list.
For those who still have nighmares about them.
Imagine seeing this lot roll up at your platform.
Are you trying to give @Victor nightmares @Ploughman?
You ought to give a warning before posting videos like that so at least we can go into private browsing mode. God-only knows what’s going to be in my YouTube suggestions now ...
Thank you for your contribution Mr Ploughman, please don't do it again..............................................
OR, If they are going for scrap let's see more videos please.
If you’re really lucky, you may start seeing material for Bombardier Electrostar units, true heirs to the H Class and Birdcage set...

I wouldn't worry overly. I mainly watch trains and alt-country music and my recommendations pretty much always assume that I want to watch Dr Jordan Peterson DESTROY feminism. Hours of Pacers would be a welcome relief.
Having spent many hours commuting on them I think it's probably closer to Stockholm Syndrome.
