    Taken from Railway Herald website:

    Train now reported to be diesel - hauled throughout. MNLPS advised at 1500 hrs today that their locomotive 'not now required'. No more information available.

    Was being hauled by Class 67 67005 when it departed Bristol this morning.

    Its 67005. Im on the tour now and we are told there is no steam today due to an 'operational issue'.

    Not sure of Clan Line had a problem after yesterday or just can't source the crew perhaps?

    Still I'd be more than happy for a loco change for a 37 or 47!
