DC Rail’s 56103 has returned to mainline traffic today, working the 0Z38 1030 Leicester LIP – Doncaster Up Decoy with Garcia Hanson’s 50008. It then returned south on the 6Z65 1415 Doncaster Up Decoy – Leicester LIP, hauling a single PNA wagon with 50008 on the rear. This marks 56103’s first outing under it’s own power since 20th April 2016, when it ran light engine from Bristol to Washwood Heath. The locomotive was then hauled, along with 56091, from Washwood Heath to Leicester Depot on 9th December 2017 by 56303.
