    Thanks Spartacus, I’ve updated my post with your information. It’s just the one diagram we don’t know now!

    How are the set numbers allocated? Is it down to the last digits of the DBSO?

    Significant disruption today due to a track circuit failure at Deighton. 68022 working 1F60 was diverted via the Calder Valley arriving at Man Vic 66 late, it has gone ECS to Longsight and the return service from Liverpool, 1E37, is cancelled. Also showing cancelled are 68027's trains 1F68 and 1E45.

    Yes - a bit easier to determine than the NCxx sets at Norwich at the moment.

    It is being used to train the final Scarborough drivers on the type. Should be there until around the end of January.

    I see 68027 had problems again this morning at Scarborough causing the cancellation of the 09.32 departure (1F60) and 12.52 return from Liverpool (1E37) as far as York. It has been repaired and gone ECS to York to start 1E37 there, but from being the most reliable of the TPE locos sadly it seems to have had a lot of problems this week.

    It seems that 'Felix' could be making an appearance at some point in the near future....

    More problems for 027 it seems, its 1F74 (16.32 ex Scarborough) was terminated at Man Vic, then went ECS to Longsight as 5H74. The return working, 1E51, started at Man Vic off a 5E51 ECS from Longsight.

    68022 has failed at Lime Street before departure with the 16.54 to Scarborough (1E45) as a result the return service from Scarborough at 20.34 (1P94) is also cancelled. And it was all going so well....

    The Nova 3s had a very successful day yesterday with all 4 diagrams working fine. Locos were: 68021,22,23,25. All locos facing Liverpool end.
    I had 68023 and 68025 for haulage, which was the first time on a Nova for me.

    When are we expecting full Nova 3 for all 7 diagrams?
    Or is the next step 6 diagrams?

    Please refer to Posts 401 and 430 in this thread. Still just 4 diagrams for the 68s. No idea about the units - not my bag.

    That's twice in a week. What a shame, it takes a lot of hard work to remove.

    68021 plus TP12 were vandalised at Scarborough last Saturday night but both were cleaned up at Longsight earlier this week.

    68025 plus TP06 was done on Sunday night but ran to Longsight on Monday. That one hasn’t returned to traffic yet.

    68019 plus TP08 was also daubed but I understand that one is to be cleaned onsite at Scarborough.
