    Has anybody heard anything about Alycidon since the failure??
    Lots of views being expressed on The Auld Reekie thread..............but no updated facts.
    I speak as someone who thinks the Deltic locos are one of the finest classes to ever run on rails.:)

    So... massive back EMF from the motors or a complete loss of regulation from the generator? Did something momentarily go open-circuit when it shouldn't have?
