    I was passing Derby Road station (in Ipswich) this morning just after 9 AM and saw a couple of class 755s which I'd like to identify if anyone can assist, please? The train IDs were 2R07 and 2R08. Thank you!

    Urgent TOPS Requests

    As we await HMG's daily update regarding Covid-19, could some kind soul check today's whereabouts of 158791 for me, please? Last noted working out of HT about a week ago (although that might be rather fluid, I feel). Thank you!

    In fact, today's move was a VSTP which apparantly comprised 142 035/055/047. So with another 3 next week, Gascoigne Wood'll soon be filling up again!

    Just spotted a STP for a HT to Gascoigne Wood move on 10th March: https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/K00225/2020-03-10/detailed Since it's not shown as being operated by Northern, max. of 3 units?

    Interesting - are both units used or is one there as "insurance" purposes only? RTT seems to suggest that all the route learning runs can be covered by just one unit.

    There's a Youtube video taken at Chillingham Road Metro station footbridge that shows most of the southern end of the depot (which is handily where the Pacers are stored, in four adjacent sidings). Passing on a mainline train should also show them BUT if there's one or more trains in for...

    I was under the impression that C F Booth was going to play a larger role in the disposal of the Pacers, yet to date only 142 005/044 have moved there (by road from NH). Does anyone know if Rotherham is to be the final destination for any further 142s (or indeed if they have their eye on the...

    TOPS Requests (including headcodes, allocations, traction, etc) [Instructions in Post 2]

    Brilliant - thanks very much 37078xotTE. Last time I saw that engine at Ipswich in 1978, the maker's plate had been removed on one cabside (at least), revealing the original brunswick green underneath!

    Very true, although taking an old washing machine along in the boot of your car might be quicker :lol:

    There is a way for a member of the public to legitimately visit EMR's site at Kingsbury - see here: https://uk.emrlocal.com/regions/how-you-can-sell-to-us/ and here: https://uk.emrlocal.com/kingsbury-scrap-metal You'll need to take something that they will buy for scrap, though! Bear in mind...

    TOPS Requests (including headcodes, allocations, traction, etc) [Instructions in Post 2]

    With grateful thanks to High Dyke for the identity of one Pacer out 'n about last Thursday (16th) and my rather shaky 'phone video of the holding sidings at NH, I was able to definately ID all bar three of the remaining 142s working out of NH. Could anybody let me know what the following three...

    I managed to get to Manchester last Thursday (16th) and noted several but sadly unidentifiable class 142s at NH around 11:45 AM and one other paired with a "compliant" unit which formed the 2B65 11:42 Rochdale to Blackburn service. Typically, my train arrived at Rochdale just after the other had...

    I've just heard back from my GBrF driver-friend. Obviously he can't speak for Freightliner, but he suggested that either the driver(s) involved used to driver 142s before changing employer and thus a quick refresher was all that was required or that they simply learnt. Having a second member of...

    I can't promise a speedy answer, but know a GBrF driver. I've emailed him to see if he knows.
