The loco has completed its final two running days at the Great Central Railway for now, working 5 return trips on Saturday and Sunday. It performed faultlessly throughout. The mileage accumulated since the loco returned to service for testing is now around 700 miles, without a failure.
The loco goes to the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway on 18/08/22 and then on to the Severn Valley Railway on 22/08/22.
Plans are advancing to replace the faulty radiator fan gearbox, change the fuel pumps on power unit 2 and to sort out some minor leaks.
Thanks to the GCR for a great visit and to everyone for their hard work over the past few months. Thanks to Richie for his company yesterday. It was a warm one!
