Hi Jim

For those of us not 'in the know' about these things, can you please explain why you had to go all the way to West Ruislip to change ends / reverse? Could this not be done at Princes Risborough or at High Wycombe?

 

Thanks for the continual flow of interesting pics and reports.

It was all to do with timings, I thought it was just going to be a risborough turn back but there was still a couple of units to go across the single line before our train was due on there so heading to ruislip gives them time to get across the line and us a safe place to walk back down the train

 

also if we’d sat in risborough then the ECS from Bicester wouldn’t have been able to access the single line

Hi Jim

Is the 66 next to yours at the head of a DB service ? Looks like the 4E63 service for Felixstowe South that I see on the CCTV on the workstation.

 

Cheers

It doesn't fill you with confidence when even the Pendolino's aren't wearing their face covering properly... ;)

Looks like they've changed the front wing... maybe someone had a little ding...

New nose cone, believe they get done every so often or if they’re damaged. There’s an Avanti livery one running round with a grey nose as well.

another one tonight, running round in rugby and back to stetchford to drop the rail 

Depending on what times your flying through Coventry I might see you in the morning as I'm on at 0438 and in the yard prepping units. 

 

Cheers
