    Not to mention hundreds of diesels and electric powered locos/trains. There is surely sufficient experience out there to air brake a railway vehicle; there has to be a different explanation.

    Thanks John. Any information where she's going after Warrington? I guess it's Southall. Via WCML or Oxford? Would be worth absenting myself from work a little early if she was heading my way...

    From what I'm seeing on Cricinfo the cricket looks quite good from an England perspective!

    Didn't Tangmere have a few air brake compressor problems years ago when first certified for mainline running?
    And wasn't it found to be faulty Polish-made compressor problem?

    There is a pathway for a movement from Carnforth to Southall on Friday 18th, whether Tangmere is ready and will utilise this we'll have to wait and see.
