Equipment Failure: “The Engine Fell Out”

Here is a report from the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) in the UK.  Ever had your engine just fall out of your equipment?

I noticed on page 3 that this type of crank shaft failure occurs several times each year, but it doesn’t normally result in the entire engine detaching from the vehicle.  This time, the failure consequences were more severe than normal.

Don’t wait for your repeat failures to result in more catastrophic results.  Come to the Summit and attend the 2-Day Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis course in Nashville, and learn how to prevent repeat failures before they cause you this much pain.
