What tourists of Berchtesgaden usually don't get to see.
A rare view of the U-Boot diesel engine and the emergency generator at the Eagle's Nest in action.
Kurdirektion staff member and chief engineer Herbert Eglauer und his team demonstrate a periodic test run of the antique submarine engine.
The smaller machine with a belt is the air compressor, which keeps the airtanks under steady pressure. Air pressure is needed to start the huge diesel engine. This is a view of the procedure get the emergency power system working. The sturdy construction still works perfecly after many decades.
The diesel motor was built by MAN (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg)
The generator was built by Siemens Schukert.
Which belongs to an unseen section of the Kehlsteinhaus. The facilty is located on the Kehlstein mountain in Berchtesgaden. The underground installation is closed to the general public. It is located by the bus parking lot where the tunnel leads to the elevator. An emergency generator was installed, in case the municipal power line was to fail. The municipal power line was installed underground for better protection and less impact on the landscape. Such independent power plants are common for bunkers and military installations.
To learn more about the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle's Nest):
The Kehlsteinhaus was commissioned by Martin Bormann, with construction proceeding over a 13-month period. It was completed in the summer of 1938, prior to its formal presentation to Hitler on his 50th birthday on April 20, 1939. It is situated on a ridge at the top of the Kehlstein mountain 1,834 m reached by a 6.5 km long and 4 m wide road that cost 30 million RMs to build (about 150 million euros in 2007, adjusted in line with inflation). It includes five tunnels but only one hairpin turn and climbs 800 m.
Today the building is owned by a charitable trust, and serves as a restaurant. The restaurant features an indoor dining area and an outdoor beer garden. It is a popular tourist attraction, particularly for Britons, Canadians and Americans attracted by the historical significance of the "Eagle's Nest". The house can be reached on foot (two hours of walking) or by bus from Obersalzberg, the road having been closed to normal traffic since 1952.
Sometimes referred to as "Teahouse" or "Teehaus". In fact the correct term was "D-Haus", short for "Diplomatischer Empfangshaus".
It was built as an extension of the Obersalzberg complex erected by the Nazis in the mountains above Berchtesgaden. The Kehlsteinhaus was intended as a 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler to serve as a retreat for Hitler and place for him to entertain visiting dignitaries
Submarine diesel engines on WWII "Silversides," Muskegon, Michigan Gary94141

I'm a Christian minister, on my way to conduct a wedding ceremony in Muskegon Michigan, when I HAD to detour to hear something I've never heard before: a pair of WWII submarine diesel engines running! I'll never forget this experience. I should have blessed the engines, and the men running them!

Unique opportunity to hear this; the "Silversides" submarine diesel engines running. This sub built and commissioned right after Pearl Harbor, and the entire sub is still nearly operational. We Americans know how to build a boat!!!

Starting a 1953 Lister JP2 in royalty class motor boat Victoria. The sequence goes like this:
- Check the oil (it's a bit low at the moment!)
- Grease the water pump
- Set the throttle (it's actually overriding the governor)
- Move the valve lifters to open
- Put on the "Patented one man auto start string"
- Place the starting handle
- Make sure your thumbs aren't crossed over the bar (in case of back fire)
- Turn like hell (especially if it's cold)
- Once firing on one cylinder drop the valve lifter on the other cylinder
- Once running up to speed take the throttle over ride off, ensuring that the alternator is charging (light goes off).
The next bit, not normally done unless running under high load (like pulling a loaded butty, or high speed river running), but for the video:
- With enough throttle turn the change-over valves quickly and smartly to the "run" position. This puts a second chamber in communication with the main chamber thus lowering the compression ratio. This reduces stress on the engine, but needs extra heat in the engine to run cleanly. Note that during the change over the cylinder vents outside (hence the need for some throttle).
Note: The engine was hot during this start - in fact I started the engine over 10 times - hence the heavy breathing at times :-)

Deze motor hier nog in vol bedrijf tijdens het slepen van mijn woonschip.
Inmiddels staat deze in het museum te Nieuwe Niedorp omdat de sleepboot meer vermogen nodig had om werk aan te nemen.

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the 'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion. "Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg) and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc (5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV. It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive 3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300 kW)".
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x 254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.
