[Updated 1st Feb/13]



NOTICEBOARD : 01/05/14
  • 73001 to Nene Valley : never having left the shores of the DFR since arriving from Merseyrail in Sept/02, the pioneer E.D. is scheduled to attend the NVR's Dielel Gala over 16-18th May. Preparations are in-hand for a FTR exam to allow 73001 to transfer via the DFR's mainline connection, possibly moving out on 12th May, but all subject to that vital 'all clear' for a mainline drag. Frequently used as a depot shunter at Lydney, its starting/running reliability is not normally an issue, but to satisfy demands for its outing on the big railway, some bogie cleaning and a good grease round will be undertaken.
  • 31466 : brake system reservoir problems preventing useage since last autumn seem to be resolved. Not used for months, some sticking contactors were also found when trying to take power, but easily freed up. Saw some service over the Easter period.
  • 08769 : came in to depot w/c 28/4 just for a few days so that some routine mtce. could be administered, before the operating season really gets into full swing.
  • SPARES FOR SALE : we still have a number of spares for sale, including items salvaged from 08734 before it was sent for scrap in Aug/11. The webpage list with photos for most of the items, is HERE.
  • Website Technical Difficulties : not all the webpages have been loaded into the new CWCS webserver so this website may appear incomplete at present.
