Week commencing Monday 15th January – 56301 had worked the Barrington spoil trains each day last week (Monday 8th to Friday 12th January). On Friday, the return train didn’t run and 56301’s first trip on Monday should be 6T02 1128 Barrington – Wembley.

Monday 15th January – There is also a path in the system for a working to bring the first batch of Mk. 5 sleeper carriages from Dollands Moor to Polmadie. Rail Operations Group (ROG) were penciled in to do the move but traction is uncertain at this point. 56301 doesn’t look likely for the Dollands Moor leg (see above) but could be in the right place to work the WCML leg (but wouldn’t get back to work 6T01 to Barrington on Tuesday morning).

Timings for Monday 15th January are:

0945 Wembley – Dollands Moor (1203)

1334 Dollands Moor – Wembley (1605)

2306 Wembley – Polmadie CMD (1027 TUE 16th January)

Tuesday 16th January:

The long awaited move of the remaining Colas locomotives from Washwood Heath looks like it could take place as workings are timed for…

0Z56 1306 WWH – NOTTINGHAM EASTCROFT (1528) consisting of 56049, 56090, 37418 & 37521

0Z57 1750 NOTTINGHAM EASTCROFT – BARROW HILL COLAS (arr 1905) (2 x 37s as above)

0Z58 2025 BARROW HILL COLAS – WWH (2302) (unknown)

Could this be a working for 56049? Or will another Colas loco do the honours? The fact there is a light engine returning to WWH would indicate the latter option but you never know.

Locos thought to be at Washwood Heath are 56049, 56051 and 56090. TOPS also shows 66848 as out of service there too. 56051 is thought unlikely to move as its bogies are reported as being at Cardiff Canton for overhaul. Depending on timescales for clearing out WWH, this could be a future road move.

Week commencing Sun 29/10 to Sat 4/11/17:

During the week 23/10-27/10, 56081 developed a slight wheel flat and is awaiting tyre turning at nearby Wembley depot. 56303 ran light from Derby to replace 56081.

Sunday 29/10/17:

56303 had run to Knottingley on Friday 27/10 to appear at an open day there. 56303 should return at 1200 on Sunday 29/10, arriving Wembley at 1652.

Whilst 56303 is running south, 56301 will take the rake of wagons over to be loaded at Willesden Euroterminal departing Wembley at 1454 (arr 1524) and 56301 should return as 1800 Willesden – Wembley (arr 1849).

56301 & 56303 should then be paired up and run over to Acton for refueling. Departure is scheduled for 1931, arriving Acton 1955 with the pair returning from Acton at 2105 (arriving Wembley 2122).

Fully fueled 56301 & 56303 should continue daily trips to Foxton as follows:

6Z16 0433 Wembley – Foxton Exchange Sidings (arr 0716) (except Monday 30/10 when arrival is 0702)

6Z17 1228 – Foxton Exchange Sidings – Wembley (arr 1501).

Weekdays Mon 16/10 to Fri 20/10.

56301 & 56081 should continue trips to Foxton as:

6Z16 0349 Wembley – Foxton Exchange Sidings (arr 0716)

6Z17 1202 – Foxton Exchange Sidings – Wembley (arr 1431)

On Monday evening, the pair of 56s should run over to Acton. Departing Wembley at 1910 (arr Acton 1933) then returning at 2042 (arr Wembley at 2104) . Both moves are shown as light engines but a similar movement last Wednesday (11/10)  seemed to bring back a rake of empty wagons.

 

31/8/17 – The diesel leg of the Scarborough Spa Express should be worked by a Colas 56 (56302 has been stated as the loco allocated).

27/8/17 Sun- 56302  56094 ran to Fort William with the oil train and should return tomorrow (Mon 28/8).

Departure is 1420 from Grangemouth and arrival at Fort William yard is booked for 2134.
