RE: [DML] BAE Turbo Documentation

That turbo timer reminds me of the one that is on all the EMD locomotives.
If you shut down the prime mover (the diesel engine) there is a turbo lube
pump that runs for about an hour to run oil thru the turbo to cool it down.
Granted, you don?t often shut down a locomotive, but when you do, I don?t
think they want the turbo to seize up either.
