From 1961 the La Brugeoise et Nivelles plant delivered 136 units of the diesel-electric class 212 (from 1971 HLD 62) to the Belgian State Railways SNCB. General Motors supplied the 1030 kW twelve-cylinder diesel engine GM 12-567C. With a top speed of 120 km/h, the locomotives could be used for passenger and freight service. In 2003 the retirement was completed.
Different starting processes can be selected with F1: 1x press button = warm start / press button 2x = false start / press button 3x = cold start
F5 enables the heavy load mode: The diesel notch is always one up compared with normal operation. If you want to jump two notches, simply set CV 104 to 170 (instead of 150).
F27 turns on the manual ntoching. Once F28 is on, you can use F28 to notch up and F29 to notch down. F27, F28, and F29 must be turned off to return to normal mode. If F27 is off and you press F28, the prime mover will run to full speed.
F17 will bring the locomotive to full stop. Hide description more…
