    Really? If true, then it's nice to see that the quiet period allowed WCRC the time to ensure that all their fleet was in tip top condition. :rolleyes:

    Seems 37518 failed near Dumfries and had to be removed from the train.

    ECS on Saturday went via the G&SW due to engineering work between Carstairs and Motherwell.

    47245 (yes, I know it's a diesel) also in the "doghouse"; been left at Northampton off this working after suffering problems. 57315 / 6 and 47237 were the other locos on the consist.

    37518 is also still at Dumfries according to TOPS; I'm sure that WCR have enough on their plates without collecting naughty locos from various locations :(

    Diesel-wise:
    33025, 37706, 47746 and 57313

    Steam-wise:
    61306, 70013 and 98746 (34046?)

    This is only what is shown on TOPS which might (or might not) be correct particularly in respect of the steamers; 73096 and 35005 are still showing at Southall and I am almost certain they are not :confused:

    70013 and 34046 definitely aren't at Southall, unless the West Shed at Butterley and Crewe works have been renamed and relocated! :)

    I believe 70013 broke down northbound on the M1 last week suggesting she has left Southall.

    Did the standard 5 ever make the move to Carnforth?

    That would figure, as moving something by road is the quickest way to get TOPS out of date!
    I do seem to recollect that it was taken up there (by rail?) not so long ago but can't find any references to the move right now.

    Sorry I mean Hadrian.... Just moved of the yard according to RTT.

    And I wish someone would proof read the trip details, OK I realise that a late change to Galatea can cause a problem but,

    "Our train leaves York at around 08:30 hauled by Pacific steam locomotive No. 46115 Scots Guardsman and heads north down the East Coast Main Line (ECML)."

    Passed by yesterday and all I could see was the nose of 61306 poking out.

    Maybe they hadn't finished the conversion work in time?
