British Railways Mark 2
Rail transport is a means of transferring of passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, also known as tracks. It is also commonly referred to as train transport. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles run on a prepared flat surface, rail vehicles (rolling stock) are directionally guided by the tracks on which they run. Tracks usually consist of steel rails, installed on ties (sleepers) and ballast, on which the rolling stock, usually fitted with metal wheels, moves

Diesel Locomotive
A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel engine. Several types of diesel locomotive have been developed, differing mainly in the means by which mechanical power is conveyed to the driving wheels (drivers). Early internal combustion engine-powered locomotives and railcars used kerosene and gasoline as their fuel. Soon after Dr. Rudolf Diesel patented his first compression ignition engine[1] in 1898, it was considered for railway propulsion. Progress was slow, however, as several problems had to be overcome. Power transmission was a primary concern. As opposed to steam and electric engines, internal combustion engines work efficiently only within a limited range of turning frequencies. In light vehicles, this could be overcome by a clutch. In heavy railway vehicles, mechanical transmission never worked well or wore out too soon

Eastfield TMD
Eastfield TMD
Eastfield TMD
was a railway traction maintenance depot situated in Glasgow, Scotland. Eastfield was a steam shed under British Railways with the depot code 65A; the diesel depot was coded as ED under the TOPS scheme from 1973. History[edit] In 1987, the allocation of the depot included Classes 20, 26, 27, 37 and 47, and DMU Classes 101 and 104.[2] Meanwhile, Class 08 shunters were also stabled.[3] At that time, the depot had a wheel lathe and two snowploughs. The depot's logo is commonly noted as having been a Scottie dog,[2] however it was more closely reflective of a West Highland White Terrier. The depot was closed in the early 1990s and the buildings demolished. All locomotives were reallocated to other depots. In the early 2000s a new depot was built by First ScotRail, but on a smaller scale to service Classes 158 and 170 DMUs. References[edit]^ a b "The all-time guide to UK Shed and Depot Codes" (PDF).
