Now 175005 is out of action, it has a massive hole in the drivers cab roof on one end. Was being towed to Chester

175005 might now be away for a while, it was on 15:21 Cardiff Central to Holyhead on Friday 10th August with 175009 leading.

I am wondering about that since I havent heard of any further inccidents involving class 175's
I'll make a guess. On Thursday evening 1V92, which was the train involved,
was struck by some railings which fell onto it at Cardiff East due to to the landslip.
IV92 is the 17 30 from Manchester due Cardiff Cen at 2058 which fits in with the time of the incident.

The damage doesn't look that bad tbh. The frame doesn't look bent and the bogies seem ok it looks like the sacrificial areas around the cab did their job.

Hardly a lazarus like recovery! Simple repair job in the main works.

PS where was your picture taken?
