Question by J.J.’s Advice / Avis de J.J.: Are there any Steam or Diesel-Electric passenger trains in the U.K.?
In North America, almost all trains are diesel-electric, but in the U.K. almost all trains are electric, as far as I ca gather.
Are there any diesel-electric or even steam trains left in the U.K. in regular service or on scenic tourist routes?

Question about trains: Electro-diesel / Diesel-electric?

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Question by Ryan_1770: Question about trains: Electro-diesel / Diesel-electric?
Are electro-diesel and diesel-electric trains the same thing, or two different types of trains? Going by the names at first I figured they where just two different ways of saying the same thing, but then I saw a section about diesel-electric trains and a separate section about electro-diesel trains on a locomotive’s page on Wikipedia, so now I am not completely certain; although aside from this page, when searching for diesel-electric trains I have found several pages that explain how they run, while I have been able to find next to no information about how electro-diesel trains run, assuming they are in fact two different types of trains. So are they just two different ways of describing the same type of train, or two different types of trains?

Answer by HOGHEAD
I have never heard the term “electro-diesel,” although UP has recently put into service new technology switcher hybrids that are battery powered when not running off the juice provided by the prime mover and main alternator, which also recharges the batteries when it is in use.

I’m not sure, as I only found out about it a week or two ago, but this may be an “electro-diesel.” Sounds logical to me, anyway.

On the other hand, there are hybrids that are electric, powered by the third rail or overhead catenary transmission systems, that are also diesel electric. I think this more likely to be dubbed an “electro-diesel.”

Wikipedia is always there, but it ain’t always right.

Powerhouse Museum 2011 Photo competition entry – diesel-electric category

Rhätische Bahn Ge4/4-III electric locomotive 646 arrives in Filisur (Switzerland) with an evening train from St Moritz to Chur on Sunday night 21 December 2008. Although the Hotel Grishuna offers tempting refuge from the cold, the lone passenger off the recently-arrived train from Davos (sitting behind the photographer) is setting off for the somewhat treacherous walk down to the village below. Although Switzerland’s famed Albula Line is very easy on the eye at best of times, I went out of my way to try and capture it at night, for that is when it seems to take on some true magic. And yes, it was cold!

Matterhorn-Gotthard-Bahn Deh4/4 locomotive 51 has just arrived in Göschenen from Andermatt (Switzerland) on 19 December 2008. We just don’t have a landscape like this in Australia, and so I took every single opportunity I could get to try and capture trains in a winter wonderland setting. After initially ruling this photo out of my Powerhouse competition entries because it didn’t feel "arty" enough, I’ve gone back to this shot because my heart and my gut told me too. To me it just whispers calm and coziness.
