MesajSubiect: Contact to buy parts for locos?   Mar 04 Dec 2012, 12:34

Hi

I represent a group of preserved locomotive owners in the UK. Our locos operate on heritage lines in the UK alongside steam locos.

Our locos are fitted with Sulzer engines, similar to those in the DA locomotives (12 cylinder as in the class 60 & 6 cylinder as in the class 80)

I am looking at buying spare parts for these engines, such as cylinder heads, pistons and all other main components.

I have emailed Electroputure in Craiova but they have not replied to any of my mails.

We are looking at buying a fair amount of stuff, with a view to setting up a regular supply of parts.

Can anyone here help me get in touch with somebody who could be in a position to sell this type of thing?


Thanks Smile

Jools

Unfortunately, E.P Craiova has discontinued it's locomotive division earlier this year.
You might try e-mailing other rolling stock companies, like Softronic Craiova or Remarul Cluj.

Thanks for the info!

I will look into finding contact details for the other companies that you mention.

As they seem to be still overhauling DA locomotives at Pascani for Marfa I hope that some parts will be available? Does anybody know where they get the parts for these overhauls from?

Thanks

Hi.
The Sulzer licensed diesel engines 12 LDA 28 with 12 cyl. and the 6LDA 24 engines are made at the UCM Reșița(Reshicza) so i think the spare parts are made by them. Here is a link to their web page:http://www.ucmr.com/comments635a.html?id=P114_0_1_0_C
Best regards for your work!

Hi

I am not quite sure what you are asking?

The situation is this...

There are many diesel locomotives preserved in the UK which we use on heritage or tourist lines. These locos were built from the start to the end of the 1960s. The issue we have is that many of the major engine components are now hard to find. These parts such as cylinder heads, liners, pistons etc are vital to keeping our locomotives in working order.

As there were many Sulzer engined locos in Romania it seemed a good place to look for spares! That Marfa seem to still be overhauling DA type locomotives would suggest that spare parts are available?

With this in mind a group of the loco owners have got together with the idea of buying spares from Romania if they are available and shipping them back to the UK. As a group we will be looking at a fair quantity of parts which would be worthwhile for even a big company to supply.

I have emailed UCM as you suggested so will see if they come back to me with a positive response or not.

If I am missing the point of your message please feel free to correct me Laughing

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Again

Thanks to Dr2005 I have sent e mails to most of those companies mentioned.

Lets hope some of them get back to me although none have yet.

I noticed on the Sitan group website they actually list some of the parts we need.


Thanks once again for all your help Smile

Hi

Happy new year to all the forum.

I sent mails to all the companies mentioned above and had 1 reply from UCM who said they can not supply us with the parts required.

I will send the e mail again to see if I get any other replies this time.

I guess this maybe a silly question, but do you think sending my request in English would be the problem?


Thanks for all your help.

That might be. If this will help, you can send me the email body via private messaging and I will translate it for you in romanian, so you could try that way too.

It's not a silly question.. who knows if your email wasn't passed as spam,because the dude that reads those emails doesn't know english , which is common in some of this enterprises... The best approach i believe ,is to give them a call .. so you'll see if they know english or not ... To dial Romania form other states you'll have to dial firs +40 then that number Very Happy ... The fact is that most employees,are older than us(the guys here,on the forum) who learned english due to the fall of comunism in Romania..Otherwise i would be probably speaking russian with you ... :roll:
The other option would be to translate into romanian your request , in which case i believe we can help you out ...

Hi DUAL

Thanks for your reply. I guess that it may be the case, I just thought that commercial companies would have an English speaker in the office for business inquiries?

Cortexedge has kindly offered to translate my request so we will see if I get any positive replies from that Smile

Cheers
