Wheel slip

Wheel slip
When a diesel loco suffers wheel slip, a warning light comes on in the cab and, apart from the driver, no-one is any the wiser. When a steam loco suffers wheel slip, everybody knows about it, as seen with the departure from Ravenglass of Stanier 8F 2-8-0 No 48151 with a return charter to Llandudno.
