Cheers.

Yes, it happened at a very difficult time for the railways just after the Hadfield crash and only days after an SWT overshot Virginia Water and ended up fouling a junction. It was something of a turning point for the modern railway.

I was there....
My friends and I used to meet up regularly on Wednesday evenings at Stapleton Road, then moved to Lawrence Hill when the former became an unsafe place to hang around after dark.
We'd watch the trains for a while then retire to St George's Hall (Wetherspoons) for grub and a pint or 2.
I turned up not long after it happened.

Did 67002 get repaired after this accident only because it was still fairly new back then?..
Because it does look quite badly damaged.

Given that it is now hauling the North/South Premier Service for Arriva Trains Wales most days along with its siblings 001 and 003, I think yeah it did get repaired. ;)

yes, I don't know if the warranty would have covered this, but would similar damage if it had been say 10 years old have been considered worthwhile to repair (before they started to be in demand like they are now). Like the 66 that ran down the embankment in Scotland. They decided it wasn't worth repairing that in the end, didn't they.

If you are referring to the recent derailment of 66734 near the shores of Loch Trieg, then nothing seems to have been decided yet: It is just rumours from sources of varying reliability suggesting that the loco will be cut up for sure as far as I can tell. As for the DB 66 that slid down the embankment at Carrbridge, it is still unrepaired and "on decision" as far as I know.
