    Without any knowledge I am guessing that the Deltic is running on one engine. Deep joy ! Currently sitting at Dunbar to let 1830 ex EDB pass.

    Reported elsewhere that it was OHLE problems; everything stopped? Hope that is the case.

    Judging by progress I don't think we have a well Deltic.

    It's left Dunbar, it was looped to allow a LNER service to pass.

    According to another site 2 traction motors have had to be isolated. Wasn’t the delay in announcing its availability due to a bogie swap?

    Seen it elsewhere saying stuck at Drem with traction motor failure, which is obviously incorrect.

    In that case the GNER service must be making a record for being late. As GNER haven't operated the ECML in many, many years. Up until a year or two years ago Virgin/Stagecoach ran the ECML under the Virgin banner. Then the "new" LNER took over when Virgin/Stagecoach pulled out.

    A1ST not having much luck are they? Can't see them gaining much revenue today.
