Stockton gain E400s during Covid19
E400MMC 11288 (39/40 branded) & 11299 (albino) have gone on loan from Walkergate to Stockton to help with extra capacity during the Covid19 situation.
E200MMC 26286 (36/37/38 branded) has gone from Stockton to Walkergate though unsure if it will be used - it transferred up this morning after working 5197.
I'm told two E400 have transferred from Walkergate to Slatyford too but unsure which as yet.

26286 back on its regular stomping ground. Was running on service 13 today. Shame we aren't going to be able to hang onto the E400 deckers.

None of Stockton's E200MMCs went in exchange - 26286 did make the trip to Walkergate on Wednesday but it appears to have been used to transport Stockton staff to collect the E400MMCs. It was back and on the afternoon 5197 on Wednesday.

Thanks for that that. Thought it odd when I read the original post. Those E400MMC deckers are hellish vehicles. A shame we can't have more of them down here in Teeside. I guess when things return to normal passenger levels will dictate otherwise.
