Some more about the fuel repairs along with some photos.

Martin and Andy Marra worked on 22 at Grosmont on Thursday 21st July to ensure the fuel system was cleaned following recent issues. The fuel strainer was removed and cleaned, new fuel filters fitted, new copper washer to replace a perished one on the main filter housing, fuel system bled and we also fitted new oil filters too. As expected the strainer was totally contaminated, the photos show the fine mesh inner filter layer before and after and the entire assembly. Other photo shows a fantastic repair carried out recently at Grosmont MPD by the diesel team to a missing bogie strap retaining link, thanks for that guys, fantastic job.

The loco should once again be a reliable member of the Moors Diesel fleet.
