Can we expect these loans to be more than just today?

Same here. I thought 5254 was required for the 836 as it did a run on the X30 afterwards (although as it was spare after the AM run, it would likely be used to provide cover for a late runng journet/breakdown etc.)

I wonder how the drivers were trained, bearing in mind there hasn't been an Omnicity allocation on Wearside for 10 years.

Maybe they're similar enough to the mercs that were there.
