    Thanks for the info and picture. Fingers crossed it can be wiped off rather than needing to be re-wrapped.

    68022 leading 68031 ("Felix") are heading to Scarborough on 0P68. 68020 should also be running to Scarborough from York with a driver training trip.

    0M68 10:10 Scarborough to Longsight was 68022 ‘Resolution’ returning graffitied 68023 ‘Achilles’.

    So, 68020 ‘Reliance’ is at the York and 68031 ‘Felix’ is at Scarborough, both for driver training/refresher trips.

    Thank you for the updated "sit-rep".

    I went for the panoramic shot including 68020, which was person free :)

    I see for (at least) the last two weeks there has been a move with mk.5a coaches from Longsight to Crewe South Yard on a Monday, with a return move later in the week. It seems as though this week's return move is taking place tomorrow (see link below). Can anybody state what the purpose of these moves is please?

    NIR3551 raised during testing on wed night related to ASDO operation on stock. Possibly reason testing on mk5 has been quiet of late. Affects other uk CAF projects as well. Mitigation in place and CAF working on long term fix.

    What's NIR3551? And, what's ASDO?
    Thanks :)

    Automatic Selective Door Operation/Opening

    Since these aren't passenger trains, unless doors were opening whilst on the move, which could make the trains go out of gauge and also represent a safety risk to any staff working on board, I wouldn't have thought such an issue should prevent testing. But this is the UK... ;)

    NIR is National Incident Report and is a system that allows the engineering departments of TOCs to report safety issues that might be applicable to trains operated by other TOCs

    Up and down the south WCML (mostly)
    If the current testing is for a period of fault-free running, clearly it resets that particular clock.

    And NIR 3551? What does that specifically refer to? ASDO?

    It refers to its number on the register of NIRs

    Is it operated by the RSSB*, or the train operating companies?

    * Rail Safety & Standards Board

    Was the actual incident which NIR3551 relates to on Wednesday night, or previously?

    It could be that all other testing is now complete and it’s just ASDO that needs signing off;)

    Good point. I might be looking in the wrong place but I didn’t notice any test trains running this week. Can ASDO be tested whilst a train is static?

    I assume ASDO has been tested on the Leeds/Scarborough trips and those have shown some problems.

    There was an incident with doors at Greenfield during a test run and that was a Wednesday, but 4 weeks ago, which is why I sought clarification.

    Many thanks for that, I hadn’t realised the Greenfield incident was down to doors. That’s certainly a bit of a show stopper until they get that one sortedo_O

    From the rumours circulating my depot it appears they just cant get these first couple of sets through fault free mileage. Training has been put off on Mk5's and we dont know when it will start again. I don't think we will see these trains in service anytime soon.
