The key highlights from week commencing 13th August 2017 have been summarised below:

1. Freightliner class 90s continued to be hired by GBRF this week from Freightliner for use on the sleeper trains. The 90s in action on the beds for all or part of the week included 90042, 90044, and 90047, which performed 1S25, 1M16, 1S26 and 1M11 at separate times.

2. Virgin Trains East Coast hired 90s from DB Cargo for the entire week, which included 90034 and 90036. However, only 90036 worked passenger services on the ECML to and from Leeds as well as Newark. Note that 90034 could be found at Doncaster for the whole week on standby.

3. Pairs of 90s from Freightliner and DB Cargo continued to operate in pairs this week, which included 90016 & 90045; 90043 & 90049 as well as 90024 & 90028 and 90024 & 90035 for all or part of the week. The freight trains operated by these loco's were 4M25, 4M27, 4M49, 4S44, 4S45 and 4S47.

4. There were a number of 90s in and out of traffic for all or part of the week, which included 90013, 90015, 90018, 90019, 90020, 90021, 90026, 90029, 90035, 90037, 90039, 90041, 90044. The reasons for the stoppages included general maintenance; wheelset replacements; heavy overhauls and waiting parts.

There is nothing else that needs to be reported here, but should you require further details on what worked what and when, then please refer to the archived news and gen pages on the main website.
