Sunday 4th August 2013

The Chat Moss route was energised today between Newton-Le-Willows and Ordsall Lane Junction in preparation of electric services from December 2014.

At some point in the coming weeks, the route will need to undergo tests using electric traction, but it no information is currently available as to what will be used.

In previous electrification schemes, class 90s have been used for load-bank testing. If they are used this time remains to be seen Exclamation

When the Heathrow electrification was tested 2 Cl90's were used with a 47 Reading depot, and the masts are up in the station area

Yes one of those 90s used on the Heathrow tests was 90050 - a sad cry from where she is now Shocked

That said exciting times ahead by looks of things.

There are rumours circulating that the 86s and 87 will be used for load bank testing but we shall see Exclamation
