    47782 was sent to Holyhead on the front of 1D88 to haul 47773 and its coaching stock back to Crewe either today or last night, while 47741 would return on this mornings 1A46 0919 Holyhead-Crewe.

  • 47757 arrived at Crewe this evening with a rake of ex FGW stock, still in green livery for use on FNW’s summer class 47 turn. The stock was: 3261, 3520, 6200, 6202, 6206, 6213, 6221, 9480, and 9501. 47757 is now on hire to FNW at Chester as a driver trainer.

  • 1M99 0605 Sheffield-BNS?? 848??
  • 1G14 2101 Preston-BNS was presumably an 86, as 47741 which would have worked this went to Edinburgh on 1S93.
  • 1Z44 and 1Z45 return: Altrincham-Minehead charter was subjected to two failures. One was from the loco that was intended to work the whole tour - 47725 which suffered an oil leak at Huntspill (after Highbridge and Burnham, between Bristol and Taunton) which caused a small traction motor fire. 47733, the Exeter standby loco took over and on the return working was low on coolant AND fuel, the coolant being topped up at Bishops Lydeard, then 733 continued to Bristol where it was removed suffering from a broken exhaust manifold and of course, low fuel. 67008 worked forward.

    THURSDAY 16/05/02
    News
  • First North Western finally confirmed in the late afternoon of Tuesday 14th May that there will be a class 47 hauled turn between Holyhead and Birmingham from the start of the summer.
    As rumoured basically everywhere, it will be a rake of ex FGW refurbished mark 2’s, with an EWS 47.
    The turn (although you probably knew ages ago):
    0630 Holyhead-BNS,
    1007 BNS-Holyhead,
    1402 Holyhead-BNS,
    1734 BNS – Holyhead.
    The above are Monday-Saturday, and the train will run into OR out of Birmingham via Bescot to avoid the loco having to run round the stock at Birmingham (as the FNW hired 37’s used to).
    Due to engineering work from July 20th this will not be possible so the train will run between Holyhead and Crewe only.
    Sunday also gets a return trip:
    1656 Holyhead-Crewe,
    2215 Crewe-Holyhead.
    Thanks to Jon Cowe and the North Wales Coast website.
  • Still on the subject of the North Wales Coast, 47828 hauled 1A46 0919 Holyhead-Euston throughout this morning, and may return on 1D88 throughout from Euston (or dead on the rear, as it had been allocated to work 1D88 from Crewe).
  • 47840 is ready to return to traffic in the original style BR blue livery (small numbers/ logo) with black headcode boxes and repositioned (lower) ‘NORTH STAR’ nameplates – which still have a red background.
  • After 1S76 was a hauled set to Edinburgh last night rather than a 220/221, 1O38 was today the same hauled set from Edinburgh, 47853 hauling the train south of Birmingham.
  • Reliability of the 47/8's seems to be slipping lately, even the normally extremely reliable 806 has failed today, along with 848 this morning. 841 also suffered an oil leak at Newcastle yesterday, but worked 1V67 as intended.

  • 1C44 1433 Paddington-Plymouth was an HST but failed and was assisted by 47756 from Tiverton to Exeter where the train terminated. 1C50 believed to have been 47830 which then formed 1A88 (the return half of 1C44) from Exeter.
  • 47750, which was expected to return to EWS yesterday - is surprisingly still at Longsight.
  • 47849 arrived at Booth Roe scrapyard - Rotherham, at the end of last week and will soon unfortunately become the first Virgin liveried loco to be cut up.
  • 1V35/ 1M40/ 1V98???
  • 57601 was seen at Maidenhead at 1935. Maybe this did work 1C90 from Paddington rather than Reading as suggested.

  • 47750 on 1E33 was cancelled at Bristol Barton Hill due to an external door having been left open on the coaching stock and swinging back on the carriage. 47750 went back to Bristol, the carriage with the broken door being removed.
    Later 47750 and the same set worked 1S93 – the set/loco that should have worked this being from 1V48 with 47810. 1V48 was terminated at BNS and formed 1E33 from there.
