    Hi all,

    I was at Stafford on Tuesday and noticed 92028 and 92014 from the GBRf/Serco Caledonian Sleeper fleet parked up.

    It was a pleasant surprise as it's the first time I had seen one of the new sleeper locos and didn't expect to see it there.

    Just out of interest does anyone know why they were there?

    I have a few photos of them but not sure how best to post them here.

    Many thanks.

    92 028 was hauling the train mentioned in this post:

    I wonder if it was detached at Stafford....

    No idea why '14 was there.

    Did the Class 90 used to fail as much?

    Both 92014 and 92028 were removed by a GBRf Class 66 on Wednesday afternoon to WABTEC, Loughborough.

    That's probably like asking how long a piece of string is...

    Without knowing specifically what they were failed with, I doubt anyone could say

    I guess it depends on many factors including how fast they get fixed and whether extensive testing is needed first
