The bell ringing indicates a green signal. The rapid beating as an alerter
from the Automatic Warning System to make sure that the driver is okay. If
he does not respond with in 5 seconds, the power is automatically cut and
the brakes are applied to bring the train to a complete stop.

Another absolutely fabulous video!!!!! And over a stretch of the greatest
section of the WCML that is the former Lancaster & Carlisle Railway. It
brings back so many memories of great runs with Electric Scots over the
fells. Keep 'em coming!

Author silverdalesapphires (1 year)
Right. I guess they changed it following privatisation, 'cos I went up in
the mid-late eighties. They did it on the 'day-train' as well. 'Parking up'
in the middle of Mossend Yard was quite interesting, especially when the
'47' disconnected and there was a hiatus before the 86 or 87 coupled up and
the power systems whirred into action again. You got to see some
interesting 'mileage' as well, by-passing Edinburgh and Glasgow.

first time I've watched your cab rides Paul fantastic! I don't think

this route?

Author mikefliesLCY (2 years)
In dodgy rail conditions especially the granularity of control the
tapchanger gave could not be under-stated, one of the reasons why a journey
behind one of these locos was characterised by smooth but powerful
acceleration and braking. There's just no parallel to be drawn between the
driving style here and the choppy, sickly "arcade game" driving that seems
so common when riding as a passenger on Pendos today. Lots of great
memories here, and a Preston man in the Chair to boot. Happy days! :)

Author JLfromEdinburgh1951 (1 year)
The first time I watched this I thought your start from Carlisle was a bit
slow. When I watched it a second time, I spotted the neutral section! I
probably knew about that neutral section once, as I had the road signed as
far as Upperby. I've just made this the first video I've added to
Favourites since I joined YouTube. But it brings tears to my eyes every
time I watch it. Sights and sounds that were once so familiar to me. I left
the railway in 1982. Maybe I should have stayed.

Neutral sections separate electrical feeder stations because
synchronisation of the phases cannot be guaranteed. Google it or look on

The bell is a warning that a signal is coming up, it alerts the driver to
