D8098 GCR

T1LC News – 9th June 2021

As you may know, ’98 has been out of traffic recently owing to a fault that caused the wheelslip circuit to activate continuously. After much trial and error on the part of our intrepid engineers, Michael and Steve finally traced the fault back to a faulty part in the reverser which was removed and replaced with a spare yesterday. Subject to a test run at line speed, the loco should be able to re-enter traffic (which is good news because it is booked for a Diesel Friday on the 16th July).
