695 and 696 have now arrived at Chester-le-Street Depot for inspection, so I can now confirm that this pair will be heading to Crook to replace 571 and 572 on "The OK Way" service 18.


In other news, 4897 has now been sold for preservation. It remains on-site at Saltmeadows Road at present, but will be taken by its new owner next week.

Have 695 and 696 entered service on the 18 yet?, if so where has 571/572 gone/going?

6144 is now at Percy Main - it'll need an inspection, but may be ready to enter service tomorrow... So keep an eye out on the DFDS!

It has been loaned for the afternoon scholars peak, to ensure Stanley meets PVR.

It will be allocated to the following:

16:00 #X30 (Newcastle - Stanley)
17:35 #X30 (Newcastle - Stanley)
18:21 #30 (Stanley - Lanchester)
18:47 #30 (Lanchester - Stanley)

Hopefully in a better state now than it was when it arrived at the weekend.  Suspension was in a bad way so couldn't be stuck on the pits for PSV test prep, some of the flooring apparently quite dubious too. Shame internal refurbs don't go the full hog like they used to.

Think 696 broke down yesterday on it's way to Crook, saw it being towed Northbound on the A1(M) yesterday afternoon.

Didn't depart 1735, 5337 did so. Therefore 5337 will be filling in on the 30 duties.

Does anybody know why 5248 was at Saltmeadows today? I'm guessing been prepared for transfer.

It could be repainted in to new livery before transferring over?

It should be going to Washington along with 5249 for spares for the 5/50 allowing the Scania's to move else where
