    Can anyone tell me about this working that i heard trundle past the house last night? it is a Tring sidings - Tring Sidings circular via Milton Keynes, Sawnbourne & the Marston Vale.

    I am assuming this to be a test train of some sort but wondered what was hauling it and whether it will stay at Tring until this evening

    Can't say for certain, but I would think it quite likely to be an OTM.

    that's what i thought but it didn't sound like an OTM and the route/timings don't seem to allow for any actual site work!

    The only other thing out of "Tring Ce Sdgs" today is a 2220 to Broxbourne Down Tamper Sdg which spends half the night bouncing up and down between Watford and Euston (and St Albans), so I'd guess that a) yes it stays there today and b) it's a test train of some kind.

    Been a few more OTMs in those sidings than normal the last week, so guess it was one of those...

    but the schedule doesn't lend itself to OTM operation. There doesn't seem to be a gap in the times to allow for, say, tamping to take place. They are usually out and back separate timings rather than a round trip.

    I may pop down to Tring after work for a shuftie

    Looks like it's either a driver training run or a route learner for OTM operator or conductor.

    Given there is no long layover at the end of the journey I would suggest it isn't a tamper or other OTM carrying out work. Normally these are timed to run from point to A to point B, then have a lengthy stoppage (whilst they work), then head back to point A (or point C) for stabling at the end of the night.

    I'd suggest it would be a weed killer, MPV on test, track recording, route learner etc etc.
