a bit off-topic for 46100, but more here: http://railwayherald.com/uknews/orr-issues-prohibition-notice-on-wcr

After the Tangmere incident, I find this incredible! It says "The enforcement action, which the ORR says is to protect the safety of its staff, volunteers, passengers and members of the public, follows an initial investigation into an incident near Doncaster on 2nd October 2015, which found staff on-board LMS 'Black 5' No. 45231 had turned-off its Train Protection and Warning System (TPWS) isolation equipment, designed to apply an emergency brake if the driver makes an error.

I guess it will be diesel hauled, if it wasn't already?

It was as far as the notices suggest, hopefully it will run as expected with it being diesel operated.
