Bassendean, originally named West Guildford, is a northeastern suburb of Perth, Western Australia.
The bore or cylinder bore is a part of a piston engine.
Commonwealth Engineering was an Australian engineering company that designed and built railway locomotives, rolling stock and trams.
The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition or CI engine), named after Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression).
Diesel fuel in general is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines, whose fuel ignition takes place, without any spark, as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel.
A four-stroke (also four-cycle) engine is an internal combustion (IC) engine in which the piston completes four separate strokes while turning the crankshaft.
A headstock of a rail vehicle is a transverse structural member located at the extreme end of the vehicle's underframe.

Shunting, in railway operations, is the process of sorting items of rolling stock into complete trains, or the reverse.
In the context of an Internal combustion engine, the term stroke has the following related meanings.
A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine.
A torque converter is a type of fluid coupling which transfers rotating power from a prime mover, like an internal combustion engine, to a rotating driven load.
