Thank you for your feedback. I hadn't been aware of that problem, as in German "Akkumulator" is primarily the rechargeable electrochemical cell.--Ulamm (talk) 11:47, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Early diesel railcars[edit]

Hi Ulamm, thanks for adding the early Saxon diesel railcars (de.wiki).

These are interesting. Those are a very early example of a diesel engine that was light enough for mobile use. At this time, most diesels were large, heavy single-cylinder designs. These are four cylinder and appear more like the high-speed diesel engines that became common from around 1930. At this time a petrol (gasoline) engine would have been much more likely (There were several petrol railcars in service worldwide by this time). Do you have any more details on them? Particularly their fuel type and their engine speed, maybe even the type of fuel injection pump, would be very interesting, as this indicates where on the history between slow-speed diesels and high-speed diesels they fitted in. Sulzer were an important maker for diesel development in these decades.

I've also taken the liberty of changing them from multiple units to railcars. I think this is probably a language issue but I don't see any indication that they were usable in multiples. Andy Dingley (talk) 13:55, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi Andy, I've just added some more vehicles.
My impression is, in early 19th century, the main problem with internal combustion motors was, how to use them for heavy vehicles.
Furthermore, in Europe petrol was expensive. With the initiative of Hungarian Lajos Láng for the construction of railmotors, Ganz Works' steam railcars (old fashioned solution) had lower costs per kilometer than the Weitzer railmotors.
The Saxon railmotors really ran on diesel. See the German WP-article linked. Imagine, just after the standstill of World War I, the first two diesel-electric loocmotives for the soviet Railways were built.
But I think, the most interesting European internal combustion rolling stock built between 1900 and World War I one were the petrol-electric Weitzer railmotors. Perhaps you have an idea how to mention them in survey articles?!.
Siemens-Schuckert company, that produced the electrical equipment, was also involved in the construction of Saxon DET 1 and 2.--Ulamm (talk) 14:37, 31 December 2012 (UTC)+Ulamm (talk) 15:03, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

ACsEV[edit]

Oh Ulamm, what have I gotten myself into? The fact is, I don't know too much about railway history, and a few quick searches were not very helpful, but I will do more work on grammar and such when I have time. To be quite honest, I have no clue how to answer your questions, but let me tell you whom you might contact for help.

  • The Arad County Library, through the text box at the bottom of the page. I've never dealt with them, and I know some libraries in Romania are less friendly than others, but it may be worth asking them.
  • Blogger romrail (romrail at clicknet dot ro). No idea who he is, but he's written about trains in Transylvania, so he might know something.
  • Marius George Oprea, author of this doctorate. His e-mail seems to be here - marius dot oprea at geografie dot ubbcluj dot ro.

I know this isn't too useful, but it may be a start. Happy New Year to you too, and keep up the good work. - Biruitorul Talk 23:00, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Re-writing Steam engine[edit]

I see you are watching this page, and added some info to a caption. I agree your edit was more informative and if the image had been in the steam engine#Steam locomotives section it would be more appropriate. What I am wrestling with here is to use 3 images- that span time- and geography to illustrate the 3 big uses. Effectively this section must be very general. I chose the Betzdorfer dampflok- because the angle showed the pistons and valve gear- it was the lastest I could reasonably find- and it was standing in a station near Bochum, the cradle of heavy industry. All this gives internal link potential when the article is refined.

steam engine#Steam locomotives need some expert attention. References are needing page numbers. Is any of the detail spurious and not on focus? Should anything be removed? There is nothing between the Rainhill trials and 1960. Can you write one tight paragraph to cover those 130 years- focusing on how the locomotive developed with the technology, and developed the technology. Anything too detailed can be put in Steam locomotive which is the linked main article.

I am just trying to rescue this article and keep it on focus an suscinct. Hope you have time to give a hand. --ClemRutter (talk) 22:17, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

O.k., in a general article about steam engines the explanation of the locomotive has to be shorter than in an article about railways. But the dating has to be correct. This special engine has been built in 1943, and Class 52 is called "the War Locomotive", in Germany.--Ulamm (talk) 22:37, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Changes to Shu Roads[edit]

Dear Ulamm, thank you for discussion on my style changes to Shu Roads. I agree the sentence starting with In time was still clumsy. See what you think of the change now. I think it is better and also there are still too many short paragraphs so merging this with the previous is better as well. I will be discussing the more serious (though still minor) changes later on my page. Cheers
