Yesterday on the Belfast-Dublin route it was a day to forget. 8208 failed in Connolly before working the 16.50 to Belfast, no spare locomotive, 4 car 2900 replaced it. 230 had an engine fire just north of Newry while working the 18.05 to Dublin, HEP caused quiet a blaze. Not known yet if the loco will ever being in passenger services again, its the end of HEP for it anyway. History repeating itself 206 was almost a write off. 19.00 to Belfast terminated at Newry because the locomotive was need to move the 18.05. All EGV's were withdrawn from services some time ago an are due to return this month but its not know if they will even return.
