D5830 Locomotive News – July 2019

D5830 is fully operational, following its yearly exam at the start of the year it took part in the Great Central Railway April diesel gala and performed faultlessly.

In April we were very pleased to announce that D5830 was off to Ruddington for an extended visit and will be the second T1LC loco to work north of the gap after D8098 enjoyed two previous visits. Our friends at Ruddington were in need of an ETH loco for the summer season and so we’ve reinstated D5830’s ETH making the loco a fully-fledged 31/4 again. On the 30th April D5830 was moved from Quorn to Ruddington on low loader and has since operated a number of weekends providing ETH to the 125 Group Mk3 stock.
