"This service was cancelled throughout due to a problem with the traction equipment (MC)."

As per RTT.

Is there another date known for the return to Derby?

Not quite correct, the 37 was tagged on at the rear. I was told 73951 was providing the power.

37800 seen rolling down the Dark Side, then the convoy back up later:-

37800 was a "cop" for me.

I was just walking over the Comberton Road bridge when it went through the station. I couldn't hear anything from the 37 but could hear the 73 working.
