HNRC's 01529 reported this morning at Hornsey, working with 08892 on the new Thameslink depot. Wonder if one of the others from Croft has replaced it at Scunthorpe or whether the hire to Tata has ended?

Tyne Yard
On Sunday 13th April, whilst driving 1Y38 to Kings Cross, I glimpsed what looked to be one of the 08s with a cut-down cab, in one of the reception roads at Tyne Yard. I was unable to id it, due to coal wagons obscuring my view.

Can you still get up on the bank to look over?

Previously unreported ( i forgot ! ), was the arrival of both 08822 and 09004 at the Avon Valley Railway. Both of these arrived at Bitton on friday i think, from St.Philips Marsh and the Swindon & Cricklade railway respectively.

Also attending for this weekends diesel gala, was their very own 07010, which has been repainted from BR green to BR blue. Late tonight, 08822 was being loaded for a return to Bristol.
