Task Log Edit

  • Refuelling is an important part of keeping a locomotive running so let's go over how we do it.
  • A refuelling stand consists of two components: The hose which connects to the locomotive; and, the pump activation control.
  • A locomotive is already stopped in the right place. Walk over and remove the fuel cap.
  • Now, go and pick up th Fuel Hose.
  • Take it over to the locomotive and attach the hose to the fuel tank.
  • Return to the fuel stand and activate the refuelling pump.
  • The system will automatically switch off once the tank is full. You can see the state of refuelling by observing the indicator on the side of the fuel tank.
  • Pick up the hose and put it back on the fuel stand. Then replace the fuel tank cap.
  • And that's all there is to it.
