The 56 didn't look to be in A1 condition judging by the exhaust. blue/grey suggests oil is being burnt. There is a scenario where a diesel engine can start running on its own oil and even if the fuel supply is disconnected will continue running untill it self destructs. A friend had this happen in a land rover but being manual was able to stall the engine. if this happens in an auto or a diesel electric its good night viena

Can't comment on this one specifically, but 56's been smoking like that since they were built, especially after periods of idling or light load. Which is of course what towing 120 tons is for a 56.
