Cold winter starts

Post by Mandrake »

As we seem to be enjoying a ridiculously mild winter (it was 12 degrees a few days ago here) lets spare a thought for our continental (and Canadian ?) comrades who sometimes have to start their cars (and diesel locomotives!) in temperatures as low as -40 degrees....




:-D
