Unfortunately, the planned movement of class 56s from Leicester LIP to Longport did not take place today. Hauling locomotive, GB Railfreight’s unique ‘Maritime’ liveried 66727, arrived with 66708 (also bound for Longport for contracted maintenance) and 56031, 56311 & 56037 were marshalled between the two locomotives. However, they were later removed from the consist and returned to the depot sidings due to paperwork issues.

Colas Rail’s 56090 is undertaking another test run this afternoon from Nottingham Eastcroft to Sleaford and back, running as 0Z56 along with 56094, 50017, 50050 & 56078. Timings here. 56090 is tailing from Nottingham but will lead back from Sleaford.
