Why are train diesel engines kept running?

I'm spending quite some time in Spain every year and in my region they have a lot of diesel powered trains.

Of course the trains have some rest time at end stations, from half an hour and sometimes up to a few hours. I wonder why they not only leave the engines running during this time but often running at high revs.

It seems like a total waste of fuel and very unfriendly to the environment. Also these trains produce a lot of noise in the station.

Anyone know why this is done? (And i mean know, not speculate. Don't need help for that. :-) ).

GE units have a four stroke prime mover and neither the two or four strokers I am familiar with run anti-freeze. The green or purple tint seen in the water in the sight glass is actually a dye that reacts when a black light is shined on them. These tests are used to detect leaks or cracks during some regular service intervals.

Fuel was cheap, and constant starting and stopping the prime mover really promoted metal fatigue and consequent expensive engine failure. Most newer locos have a two speed idle that automatically compensates for temperature changes, idling slower when warmer, faster during freezing conditions.

Most outside terminals (no round house forces) have a red light that lights automatically if the temperature is expected to drop below 40 degrees F. At all other times, then engines are to be shut down if being left unattended for more than one hour. With anywhere between 4200 to 5000 gal US fuel tanks, it costs a few bucks to fill one.

Even if burning 4 gallons per hour at slow idle, and you are running four or five thousand locomotives (or more) at any given time, the cash outlay for idling engines becomes quite considerable.

When I left the service in 2000, fuel conservation practices in place at the time dictated that even if stuck in a siding for a considerable length of time as informed by the train dispatcher, the lead locomotive was left running to hold the air while all others in the consist were to be shut down.

It has gotten to the point where train handling practices are being compromised for the sake of fuel savings.
