Anyone else think it is a bit silly (in some ways) that the government sets the amount of rolling stock TOCs need, but then does nothing for freight. Ie, why have Freightliner buying more 66s (and GBRf and DRS) when EWS has some that aren't being used.
I'm probably missing something here - I know freight is organised very differnetly but still.
Ere, it isn't the first "operational" shed to be stored.
If you paid more attention ( ), you'd know that 049 has already been stored for 6 months previously because of wheelset problems. It's EWS's worst shed. It's on the system showing as a pretty small problem, but I recon that there's a more severe problem behind it.
It was stored WNTS along with 5 60s on the 12th/13th of this month.
