A notable anniversary occurs on 21st. August as it will be 30 years since 5690 was commandeered off a southbound 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' to remove a failed class 40 diesel and it's freight train which were obstructing the up line just north of Garsdale. 'Leander' worked wrong-line from Kirkby Stephen to Garsdale to reach the front end of the diesel and shunt the ensemble into one of the seldom used sidings. With it's rescue mission completed 5690 returned to Kirkby Stephen to collect the, by now, much delayed 'Cumbrian Mountain Express'. I wasn't out for this one sadly but can imagine the startled looks on linesiders faces as 5690 appeared wrong line, minus train. I wonder if anyone has any photos they would like to post from the day.
