Following prep work over the last couple of days, 55 022 has all been tested tonight at Grosmont MPD and all found to be in fine order after one or two little issues were soon addressed.
The loco is scheduled to depart from Grosmont on Tuesday 4th April together with 46100 ‘Royal Scot’ at 07.50. Run to Battersby with 46100 leading and 22 on the back, 22 to haul to Battersby, run round at Darlington and then work south to Newark as a pair on the front of the support coach, with a few hours break at the NRM. 22 will spilt off at Newark Northgate and then continue light to Wansford.
I will advise timings as soon as possible, but apologies for being away from our office for a few days….
