Porterbrook and Northern to develop electro-diesel MU

first_imgUK: Faced with an ongoing shortage of diesel multiple-units and delays to Network Rail’s electrification programme, rolling stock company Porterbrook Leasing and Northern franchise operator Arriva announced on December 22 that they are to develop an electro-diesel multiple unit by converting former Thameslink dual-system Class 319 EMUs.Northern has already taken delivery of around 20 of the 86 four-car Class 319s which are being replaced by Siemens-built Class 700s under the Thameslink Programme. These have been refurbished to operate on the recently-electrified Manchester – Liverpool and Liverpool – Preston routes. Porterbrook has ‘committed to deliver to Northern’ the modified Class 319 Flex variant ‘which is able to operate seamlessly over electrified and non-electrified routes’. It says the project is being supported by the Rail North partnership of local authorities in the north of England.Mirroring the development of the Class 230 DMU by Vivarail using former London Underground D78 metro trains, the Class 319 Flex would have a diesel alternator powerpack installed under each of the driving trailer cars. This would feed the existing traction motors via the train’s DC bus to minimise any changes to the equipment. The unit would be able to operate on diesel, 25 kV 50 Hz overhead or 750 V DC third rail supplies.Following the completion of concept design, the detailed design work has started in conjunction with Wabtec’s Brush subsidiary. Despite reported concerns over the structural condition of the 30-year old bodyshells, the first units are expected to enter passenger service with Northern ‘by spring 2018’. Further trains would then be made available to ‘a wide range of operators’ who could potentially make use of the dual-mode capability on partially-electrified routes.Porterbrook’s Projects & Technical Director Zena Dent said the Class 319 Flex would be ‘a flexible and highly-efficient unit that will provide operators with a “go-anywhere” train’. By minimising the alterations to the existing vehicle design, the partners are aiming to keep the cost of conversion at ‘an attractive level’. The train could be used to replace existing DMUs or offer enhanced performance by the fitting of extra batteries for energy storage if required.last_img read more

Argonauts earn two wins to kick off 2013 season

first_img Share Argonauts earn two wins to kick off 2013 season Senior Jordan Ratliff earned her first victory of the 2013 season on Saturday. (Photo by Bill Stockland) center_img     PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida softball team held Young Harris scoreless for 13 innings en route to earning their first two wins of the 2013 season. The Argonauts tallied 21 hits and scored 11 runs in their first doubleheader of the season.Game One Box Score The bats came alive early for UWF in game one as the Argonauts defeated the Mountain Lions 8-0. Senior Kasie Buckley (Little Rock, Miss./East Central CC) drove in the first run of the season in the bottom of the first inning on a single up the middle. Buckley went 2-for-3 with 2 RBIs in game one.Junior outfielder Danielle Sanders (Leesburg, Fla./St. Petersburg College) brought in the second run of the game in the bottom of the second inning by drawing a RBI walk to bring in sophomore Jordan Camp (Hilliard, Ohio/Hilliard Bradley HS). Sanders had two stolen bases in game one. West Florida’s outstanding defense in the outfield was highlighted by a diving catch in center field by junior outfielder Audrey Harner (Celina, Ohio/Cypress College).Senior pitcher Jordan Ratliff (Petersburg, Mich./Owens CC) was in cruise control through the first five innings, scattering two hits in her first appearance of the season. Ratliff’s experience and ability to get out of a jam on the mound showed in the top of the sixth inning. With the bases loaded, one out and a 3-2 count, Ratliff struck out the Young Harris batter before inducing a 5-3 putout to end the inning with the bases loaded.“Jordan had a great performance today,” head coach Tami Cyr said. “She has a great ability to keep the ball down inside and outside. A lot of the Young Harris hitters were crowding the plate so we were able to bring it inside and make them pop it up and beat it in the ground. Plus she had total command of her changeup. She threw the changeup today on any count and was able to get the out.”West Florida ended the game an inning early in the bottom of the sixth inning. After scoring three runs to extend the lead to seven, sophomore Aubrey Sumlin hit an RBI single through the right side to bring in the winning run to end the game after six innings.Game Two Box Score In game two UWF defeated YHC 3-0. Sophomore pitcher Taylor Bailey (Austin, Texas/University of Louisiana Monroe) lit up the Mountain Lions on the mound in her first career start for the Argos. Bailey struck out eight and allowed only one hit in the complete-game shutout.“It felt great to get the first win, we have been working so hard this preseason and it feels great to get the victory,” Bailey said. “I can honestly say that this is one of the best outfields I have had behind me. They run down balls I’ve never seen before so having them behind me is huge.”UWF struck early again as junior Hannah Dowling (Irvine, Calif./Santa Ana College) hit a RBI double down the left field line to bring in sophomore Bianca Lopez (Stuttgart, Germany/Patch American HS) and Harner. Harner drove in the third run of the game in the top of the second with a single to right field.In the top of the fifth, Harner made a heads up in the play reaching second base on a fielding error. Harner broke out of the box with speed and reached second base before the Young Harris defender could put a glove on her.West Florida will be back in action tomorrow morning as they wrap up opening weekend with a doubleheader against Southern Arkansas. First pitch will be at 9 a.m. at the UWF softball complex.

Auburn pays no mind to being No. 3 in College Football Playoff rankings

first_imgAUBURN — The college football world was in a frenzy Tuesday night as the first ever College Football Playoff rankings were unveiled, but Auburn wasn’t paying attention to the occasion.“My thoughts are,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said, “tonight doesn’t concern me at all.”It wasn’t merely coach speak; the Tigers were practicing in Auburn’s indoor facility as the rankings were released.Auburn (6-1, 3-1 SEC) debuted at No. 3 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, part of the four-team playoff field along with top-ranked Mississippi State, No. 2 Florida State and No. 4 Ole Miss.Conventional wisdom is that should Auburn win out, which would require road wins at Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama, it would be among the four teams in the inaugural playoff field. Alabama and Georgia are ranked No. 6 and 11, respectively, in the playoff committee’s rankings but are No. 3 and No. 9 in the AP poll.Kansas State, which was ranked No. 9 by the playoff selection committee – higher than its No 11 ranking in the AP and Amway Coaches polls, helped Auburn’s case as well.“We’ve got three top-10 teams on the road, I don’t think there’s another team in college football that can say that,” Malzahn said. “We’ve already went to Kansas State, which I think is the No. 11. We’ve already went to the No. 1 team on the road, so the ball’s in our court. We’ll worry about that when we get to that.”The Tigers now have an idea as to how the College Football Playoff selection committee views its resume thus far, though the players aren’t wrapped up in the outside perception right now as they prepare to play the Rebels in Oxford Saturday night.“I really have no care about it at all,” center Reese Dismukes said. “Whatever happens is going to happen.”Auburn is ranked No. 4 in both the Associated Press and Amway Coaches polls this week following its 42-35 win over South Carolina.With the same record last year, Auburn debuted at No. 11 in the BCS Standings on Oct. 20. It took two weeks for the Tigers to crack the top 10 in the BCS last year, another three to get in the top five, and finally reached No. 2 after winning the SEC Championship.That experience taught Auburn’s players how meaningful the rankings are at this time of year.“I don’t really pay attention to it, because you always know it’s going to change every week,” defensive back Robenson Therezie said. “Every week a top 10 team is getting beat or getting dropped down in the rankings. I’m just focusing on one game at a time and just like last year, we (weren’t in anything). We (weren’t) in the top 25 or nothing. We were just focusing on one game at a time. At the end of the season, we’ll see where we end up at.”last_img read more
