D9009 failure

The DPS regrets to report that D9009 ‘ALYCIDON’ failed while hauling ‘The Auld Reekie’ tour yesterday, which resulted in the train having to be rescued at Berwick by 67004 – our thanks go to DB Cargo for their assistance. It appears that the loco has suffered a traction motor issue and arrangements are now being made to return the loco from Doncaster to Burton. We share the disappointment of the passengers on board the train and those on the lineside. This is the first time that D9009 has been declared a failure while working a tour since its return to the main line in 2012.
