Anglia TSO 3277 part of shortened formation yesterday, also seeing the return of the infamous DVT...

We aren't taking bets on it lasting beyond the weekend going on previous 'repairs'...

It was in 5 Car Formation today, so another TSO must of been sourced from somewhere. DVT 82128. So it's not failed!

I checked at Picc yesterday (at about 0930) and it was NOT there, so Im assume didnt form the 1024....

Today, it was in "normal" formation with DVT+full VT colours mk2s+90020. It performed faultlessly between Manchester & Stockport.... (i did a desparate move - first British lhcs of the year ;) )
What happend to the ex-Anglia "dbso" rumour.... all thru' summer it was rumoured that Riviera's dbso would make an appearance on driver training runs on the XC.. but it never materialised.....

Oh, and one of Dave Warby's "solid seven crew" was on the skoda today... it seems the seven men are beggining to dabble in the dark side now - I even saw Snr. Voakes on the skoda a couple of weeks back!! :shock:

It NEVER seems to come out on bloody Tuesday!!! :angry4: I'm sure someone in VT control knows I finish college early on Tuesdays....and makes sure it doesnt come on on Tuesdays on purpose!! :shock: "Mr. Mini Voakes" perhaps...?!
He's West Coast, nothing to do with XC. Mr Boden may be a better bet!
