Vivarail Lays Out Action Plan As Faulty Repair Work To Blame For Train Fire

The title of this post is the title of an article on the Rail Technology Magazine web site.

This is the first paragraph.

Vivarail has released its full report on the Class 230 test train fire that took place over the festive period, concluding that the cause of the fire was due to a fuel leak in one of the train’s gensets, likely caused during recent repair work.

I have no experience of diesel engine design, except what I picked up, when Cummins were a customer., where they used my software to analyse production and testing statistics.

But fuel leaks do happen and normally, they don’t cause fires.

I can remember Cummins being very strict about any leaks of sll sorts on their engines.
