Thursday 16th October 2008 ~ Meet The Geminis
The dust was just settling from 20353's accident yesterday when this afternoon Geminis 37571 (AU58ECV) and 37568 (AU58ECJ) arrived at King's Lynn. It is rumoured locally that they may go into service as early as Saturday, but neither is taxed at the moment. I checked the hardness of the seats and can confirm that they are...... well, hard.
20104/06/42 were on schools today while Paragons 20502 (service) and 20509 (air fault) were idle. 20121 had a charging fault but was fixed to work K20 this afternoon. Jamie R travelled on it on the 20.18 ex Peterborough and remarked that it was a lot quieter than 20117. 20131 has acquired an ad for 'The Architects of Fashion, Grand Arcade' on the passenger side, but retains the M&S one on the other side. It came in on Y21 17.25 ex Lowestoft on which 69007 had originally been rostered. There were (amazingly) no swaps other than K20 today which had 20141 this morning. Timekeeping was good generally, but K16 13.01 Wisbech - Peterborough was 18 late departing with 20105.
