Must have miscounted all those 15 coach trains I travelled on back in the mid 80s then.... Rolling Eyes

Totally agree with 50031, mainline operation = expensive. Unfortunately the days of using secondhand ex scrapyard spares are over and a paper trail has to be in place to verify overhaul, testing etc, a visit to Doctor Voith is going to cost you in excess of £40,000 for a single transmission.

Not heard anything on the subject for a while, was wondering if anyone has got any news/updates about how 31 is getting on?

Noticed 50031 outside Cardiff Canton depot as I was passing by on a train yesterday.

Work to reconnect the various sub-systems is completed, and the engine has been started. A few issues were identified and still need to be resolved before 50031 can be used in a preservation environment again.

I wonder if your informant has asked the crews to be gentle with it, in light of how it was running today!

Even its storm out of Hampton Loade on the second round trip was somewhat tamer than usual!

I saw it resting at KID and go through Bewdley yesterday afternoon. I was thinking the class 20 had failed and the hoover was on a ECS, until I saw the guests were in the middle car.
