  4. Finally happened, 196 testing between Tyseley and crewe, a long night, dynamic testing, checking stopping distances from 100mph in full service and emergency as well as a few other tests with the vigilance, DSD, horn etc stafford Crewe New St and back to Tyseley hopefully same again tonight, probably with the same unit

  9. Think so, I’ve been on one but never driven it or looked in the engine room, a lot of the drivers I know who sign them hate them as they are so temperamental
  10. I really should get a few of these wagons in GB livery, missed out last time as they were off my radar as I’d never worked them for real but now i do aggregate trains in work I wouldn’t mind a short rake of them
  11. Must admit I sold an ‘Oliver’ about 10 years ago when Dominic grew out of Thomas and even used (ie played with by a kid) it went for stupid money back then, I seem to remember I paid about £25 for it and sold it for about £100
  12. No not today, off at nuneaton, glad you posted that pic as, as I type real time trains is showing 4O46 as stood at Bermuda park, thought it had failed!!
