So I rode the ‘38 yesterday. Today there was no train. Then this has just
appeared … no trains for another WEEK; what if it still doesn’t resume
after that! Did I just inadvertently manage to ride on the last day that
they were in service … ?

006 failed last week, 008 failed yesterday (one post suggests axle box
problems?). 007 is supposedly nearing the end of an overhaul. Another post
suggests service may resume on Monday.

people posting and commenting.

On local travel news this Morning, Train back in service today till 6pm.
Then closed for the weekend for engineering works and testing of the
replacement.
Wonder if it will make January before the scheduled shutdown.
