It costs 136 pounds Sterling a year to maintain adequate filtration of lubricating oil on one of British Railway's major classes of locomotives and filtration generally accounts for a large part of railway maintenance costs. Topics covered include lubricating oil quality, effect of dirt, the lubricating system, filters and media, oil consumption and filter life, dirt-holding capacities and element failure. Fuel oil filtration is also considered.
