    You weren't kidding when you said "a short distance". No disrespect intended, of course. I realise these things have to be done cautiously and incrementally.

    It's an unfortunate setback, but after all the work that's gone into it, I'm sure it will eventually get there. It's a credit to the restoring group that they've got the machine this far considering it hasn't been powered up since 2001.

    Richard.

    Great news.

    (I wonder if that will have to go out with a 47 on the back ‘just in case’?)

    Excellent News, and a very useful addition to LSL's fleet.

    Quite the train set is being collected at Crewe!!!!

    I am *so* looking forward to seeing 89 001 return to traffic. I remember being mightily impressed by it when it was on trial on the ECML (and as I was commuting back then, so I had a few runs behind it) and far preferred it to the GEC option that was settled upon in the end.
