TheSlash mobile failed on home depot this morning, it got confussed overnight and thought it was a 170, so when I tried to start it this morning, it had a flat battery.
After assistance from the home depot Vectra, TheSlash mobile was started, inspected and found to be firing on all cylinders, so departed at high speed for Fareham depot, arriving 15 late.
Further testing at Fareham depot was unable to replicate the fault or cause. The battery was found to be low on water and subsequently topped up.
As Sprog would say "Vehicle let run for further reports" ;)
Not bad for a battery with a first charge date of 07/97

It's abandoned in Fareham yard at the moment while i'm on call, there was a heavy frost on it last night, so that will tell me if the battery is definetly gone.

I thought it was Petersfield because of the low buildings. The train is on the down road.

Nah, it's simply the truth :) Anyway, you'll have forgotten about it by the end of the month - hopefully.
