Seen passing WMSC earlier today on route to Old Oak from Tyseley. Running on one engin only, hopefully not far off a full return to service.

If all goes to plan D1015 will move under it's own power from Tyseley to Old Oak Common on Thursday 22nd November. This is the last phase of a 2 and a half year overhaul which should see D1015 return to traffic in Spring 2013.

November 2012
D1015 currently resides at Tyseley, courtesy of Vintage trains who we owe a considerable debt of gratitude for all their support and bed and board for the loco. It is hoped that Western Champion will soon move to Old Oak Common where a bogie change will be carried out along with the fitting of new windscreens and final preparations for a return to the main line.

It is expected that maintenance will be complete in early 2013 and we are aiming for an April return to railtour duties.

It is also planned for D1015 to join D1062 at the SVR for a Western Weekend, 4th to the 6th of May.

Here May to August according to the diesel rota, seemingly deputising for D821.

D1015 has a couple of railtours before coming here: Derby to York and return on 10th April, and then Paddington-Plymouth-Waterloo 7th May.

There's also a return path in from Bescot on the Monday - is D1015 returning or is this something else?

Looks like that working has a load, not just a light engine.

Thanks to Matt Robinson on SVR Diesels Facebook

At Kidderminster TMD D1015 engine getting a pressure wash 17/10/16 while out the loco, loaded into a Rudd with overhead crane and rolled out, imagine trying to do that a year ago! Loco was brought out later for the same treatment in the currently empty engine bay.

I think D1015 is on the mainline this Saturday and passing through Kidderminster on the Yuletide East Yorkshireman.

Regards
Reg.

Going by the linked webpage, D1015 is attached at Kidderminster on the outbound, and continues as far as Worcester on the return.
