Saw this pass Berkhamsted about 11.20 yesterday. I'm just as curious to know the reason forthis transfer. Had no idea it was headed for Northam!
A drag does feel a bit like overkill.This unit I believe is going to Northam depot for wheel lathing because London Midland are not able to do it in there own depots at the moment? Please correct me if I'm wrong?
I do believe the 350/1 had there shoes removed, shortly after use with Southern.

Don't know what happened, reportedly Kings Heath managed to put their own lathe out for a while and this one badly needed doing. So they arranged for it to visit Northam.Agree it is a bit strange to go to that bother for tyre turning, after all there is a lathe at Wembley which I am sure LM have sent stuff to before, though there could of course be problems with finding a slot there / cost issues. The load bank thing sounds much more likely.
