Problem with the brakes on the cl50, so we were informed at the WMSC.


Not correct. 50 brakes were fine, and infact to prove it, a brake test was conducted using 50031 and they worked fine.

Ill informed report, I'm afraid.

Yes, saw it at Blakedown, but I was on a train going to Worcester at the time - so couldn't get a photo. I did suggest to Mrs. S. that she get off our train & stand in front of it until the convoy passed by, she wasn't impressed!

Dave Redbourne on Preserved Diesels Facebook site has commented 50049 has all its liners back in, and it is hoped that 44's new engine will be craned in the first week of November.

Loco Latest

50044: Failed on the mainline in July 2012. The failure was crank shaft and big end bearing related. A replacement power unit has been obtained from a Portuguese 18XX, this has been overhauled and modified to UK specification. This replacement unit was paired with teh existing Generator at Brush in Loughborough. To return to the mainline Exeter will also need GSM-R fitted, and appeal has been launched to fund the power unit overhaul and the fitting of GSM-R

It's all part of the Derby 175 openday at Etches Park. http://www.derby175.co.uk/... So the date is wrong in the twitter feed, as the open day is taking place on 13th September which is next weekend, not this weekend.

Yes it will return to KR after the Derby 175 open day, but the details are yet to be finalised.

Exeter still requries extensive work before it will be back in service....
