Saturday 24th January 2009 ~ Two Black Sheep
37578 with large destination display heads past Walpole on K17 at lunchtime.
The service seemed to run quite well for a Saturday today, but there were two major exceptions. J10 10.48 Peterborough - Lowestoft with 20107 was into Wisbech 25 late at 11.59 and after loading a lot of passengers left around 28 late. Nevertheless it completed the diagram. In the afternoon we had something which at one time was commonplace, a mating pair of elephants ! 37570 departed Wisbech on time at 15.31 on K7, but following it was 37568 on K5 exactly 30 late. Other services ran within 5 minutes of time.
B10s helping out were 20107 (see above) and running dead on time was 20118 on L13 07.45 from Lowestoft. This too did the whole turn. There was only one Profile seen and that was 20352 on K4, the early bath turn.
Only two of the B9 Geminis were absent, these being 37566 (not seen since Monday) and 37567.
