55022 work for 11th December and looking ahead

1 Dec , 2015  

55 022 is rostered to work the Translator/E.M.U. move for GB RailFreight next Friday the 11th December as shown below, running in the current guise of 55 007 ‘Pinza’. At this stage, it is looking that the loco will complete the current work the following Friday with the loco returning 320 309 to Shields T.M.D.

We expect that GBRF will use alternative traction after the New Year, due to the Company now having a choice of locomotives available on a daily basis in Scotland. Bearing in mind that 55 022 travelled to Springburn in April 2013 to work GBRF’s Translator Coach movements to and from Kilmarnock and Shields T.M.D.

It is remarkable that we have now done this job exclusively and continuously for 32 months!!! Once again a credit to the quality of the English Electric product and also our dedication to ensuring routine maintenance is performed far in excess of the requirements of our V.M.I. Policy.

At this time, we do not know where 55 022 will be destined for at the completion of this work. A railway local to me, with a nice warm shed, regular diesel operation and friendly honest staff would be great!!!

Best Wishes,

Martin….
