The new Diesel Engine book

Arguably the most complete book on this matter ever written.
Two books, volume 1 of 512 pages and volume 2 of 442 pages, all in colour.
Kees Kuiken, the author and who is an expert in this field, spent 4 years to complete these volumes.
Cost EURO 135 plus postage, second print soon.
For any further information, then please send me a PM.
Attached some pages of the brochure.
Jan

Thumbs down Diesel Engines

Looks like a nice, tidy, informative, book; but, you'll never get me to buy it, I just have nightmares about the big, black, noisy, monsters!

Billyboy They were never big black noisy monsters. They may have been misunderstood but really just needed love and attention. The odd kind word helped to keep them sweet, you understand. An affectionate pat as you passed and a cheerful greeting in the morning, all these things helped!

Well it helped Prince Charles with his flowers!!!!!!!

The affectionate pat was usually followed by the words "just keep running pleeeease"

Cool Cool Diesels?

What was that I once heard, upper pistons flying through the Skylights and landing on the boat /funnel deck? A port line boat in avonmouth in '63/4 I think it was.
