That was a fun video.

See, music makes all the difference Wayne.

I loved the series of expressions on that guy’s face in the pictures. All the wood-gas-faces:

1.Scratching his head being perplexed,
2.being relieved when he figured it out,
3. SWEM.

A quite nice one from Ukraine. No clue what they are talking about though. But it looks that he is SWEM-ing, too :wink:

Stealth gasifier on charcoal.

Hope you find it useful.

Hello everyone,
just found by coincidence a video from the soviet railways. It is dated 1955. It looks like it is about an exhibition about newest railway equipment (locomotives, rolling stock, track maintenance and so on). From about 11:40 to 13:00 there is a medium sized motor locomotive with a gas-generator. It can be clearly seen that it is an updraft coal-gasifier with added steam.
I can’t understand what they say, but maybe @KristijanL?
I have only seen pictures of small shunting engines during WWII with gasifiers, never this size.
Maybe you will find it interesting.


Regards,
Til

Hi ALL, this is linked three posts up to a woodgas and a charcoal gas converted vehicle systems that member Tilman put up.
Russian languages both.

You can now view those close captioned translated into the language of your choice.

Once playing bottom sweep to visible open up the lower edge tool bar.
Click on the CC closed captions.
Then open up the Gear shaped settings tool icon.
Select Auto translate
Click open on the right hand side of the Subtitles/CC line just past the current setting word Russian.
May get an auto translate you have to click enabled again.
Then you will have a long languages selection scroll to choose from.
Select and read on in the language of your choice.

Enjoy these videos then.
Regards
