A 14-week training course used by the Southern Region of British Railways is described. On the engine side, the aim is to present the fundamentals, and to go into considerable detail on the parts and operation of the engine fitted in the Southern Region diesel-electric multiple-unit trains. On the electrical side, lecture room experiments are carried out to prove various laws and demonstrate the use of instruments for circuit checking and fault finding. An operation simulator is pictured and its use is described. This unit simulates the complex action of load control equipment on the diesel-electric sets.
