How often do Loco's take on fuel?

Rate this question

Question

Can anyone tell me what kind of mileage do you get on a full tank of diesel with say a GM 071 class loco? Just wondering how often they have to return to depot for fuel? Are there still re-fueling options in places like Rosslare, Tralee, Westport for example?

Just reviewing this post. Can anyone tell me where locomotives take on fuel at Inchicore? Are there fueling points on the slabs outside the running sheds? Say here for example? (Credit: Google Maps)

Did a loco not run out of fuel a week or two back?

 

Possibly just rumours.....

Fuelling in Inchicore is done on Roads 1 and 2 of the Running Shed (those nearest the running lines), just inside the Dublin end of the Shed. Oil and water is available there too. Windscreen washing was at the far end of the same roads, again inside.
