033 is indeed on 1M11

Viewed across the field from Meadow Lane just after 10am this morning were 92020 outside the shed at the very back of the complex (pan down) and a little closer to the main complex of buildings an unidentified blue 92 with pan up - assume 010 from TimboM's recent list.

Almost certainly 010.

006 is/will be CS blue too, but I’m pretty sure it’s inside the workshop and a way off being outside with its pan up.

For those interested in spying the rare-ish tunnel locos, DB's 019 will be moving to Wembley tomorrow for transfer on to Crewe ETD at some point thereafter. 011 and 036 are currently at Crewe for repair, so that will leave 015, 041, 042 plus 032 manning the fort at Dollands Moor.

Not directly sleeper related - but any gen on the date for 040 to return to UK soil?
When 021 came back the info was that 040 was planned to be this week - but as to what day exactly or if that's still the plan, I'm not sure!

92040 (minus bogies), following its return from France, quite easily viewable across the field from Meadow Lane at around midday today, lots of people in high-visibility vests swarming around it.

In other news, 92019 was stabled in Wembley Yard at around 0830 on Saturday morning, presumably awaiting transfer to CE as per TimboM's recent post.

92023 was 1M11 Fri night / Sat morning, viewed on the blocks at Euston at 0845 (87002 5M11 and 90045 1M16).

Thanks for the update.

040 bogies travelled separately as per 021.

019 was taken back to Dollands this morning by the VSOE 67s.

036 is fixed and ready to leave Crewe imminently, leaving DB 011, GB 028 and GB 044 in the ETD under repair.

No worries - do we know what the reason is behind the bogies being brought on separate transport?

I can only think that there's some sort of weight restriction somewhere on the route that the road transport takes which prevents the loco being transported with its bogies - perhaps on that bridge on Meadow Lane immediately before the entrance to the Brush complex?
