Wednesday 10th September 2008 ~ We Apologise But The End Of the World Is Running Late

The three B7 Profiles left the area today, 20352 did K20 06.47 King's Lynn - Norwich but did not return and 20505 off an exam did the afternoon leg. 20353 remained at Yarmouth overnight and it looks like 20351 travelled over empty. The news we've been dreading was confirmed tonight - when the three Profiles return from Scotland, 20507/8/9 are leaving for service elsewhere. May be it is coincidence, but 20508/9 are two of the three most reliable B12s (20502 is the other). Bruce had a good session observing operations today but was not impressed with punctuality. K6 09.18 ex Peterborough was seen by Judith entering Wisbech at 10.18 with 20127, about 14 late, Y9 11.18 ex Peterborough was similarly late (20500) as was J11 12.18 ( unknown vehicle). K5 11.25 from Lowestoft was well late and 20142 made up some time as it was only about 5 late returning from Peterborough. Finally 20109 on K1 12.25 from Lowestoft was 24 late passing Walpole and was later removed at Lynn on the return 16.48 from Peterborough with a steering wobble. 20118 from the schools fleet worked forward.
Because of the absence of the Profiles, K4 07.29 Lynn - Peterborough etc had the delights of Scania 65532.

20141 IS being repaired at Lowestoft and plans are underway to do the same for 20120 which is still languishing at Lynn depot.

I guess 120/141 will be needed when the 3 B12s go so is why they're sticking them back together?
