    Tomorrow's movement seems to be cancelled too as the loco move from Leicester to Mossend isn’t running.

    Loco has made it to Yoker but hasn’t left for Crewe yet.

    Failed it’s inspections - not in good enough condition for future use some units were being eyed up for.

    Whatever the move is left Yoker for Crewe at 1049, over 2 and a half hours late.

    Did we ever establish what that projected future use might have been?

    I know LO was rumoured, but I never quite grasped the logic of why they would take such a unit when they are already sending similar units off-lease for scrap, units which are outwardly better in having had more done to them over the years and already having the correct branding et cetera.

    Having said that, it would have been interesting from an enthusiast perspective to see a die-hard Scottish unit working in London!

    I may pop down to Acton Bridge after work and see it pass through there if it's not gone through too early - will give my car a run given I hardly use it and school hols mean slightly lighter traffic!

    Thanks. It can be a bit early; in fact that'll help with my evening plans somewhat. But I suspect it'll have to roughly stick to the schedule south of Preston since the line is much busier.

    Hmm it's making cracking progress so far but may yet get stopped at Warrington. Does show how much leeway these moves have though. Same with Portbury to Crewe/Manchester TPE deliveries - not uncommon to leave Bristol an hour or two down but make up all time by the Midlands and be early north of Stafford.
