Tuesday February 16th 2010 ~ Timetable Woes

The timetable was a bit of a mess today, at its worst, 20107 was seen running 41 late on L12 12.35 from Peterborough by Bruce at Terrington. The following service, Y13 with 37156 was itself 20 late but not far behind 107. This evening 20107 was just 3 late at Terrington on the 21.05 to Peterborough - surely it must have run out of service to regain this much time, beast though it is. 37156 on the other hand had barely regained any time on Y13 (about 5 minutes in fact).
B7s 37159/160 had gearbox seals renewed today - a consequence of strenuous work perhaps. 37157 was most unusually on L8, the longest diagram and possibly because it was short of fuel was swapped after departing Lynn for Lowestoft at 21.35, presumably at Vancouver Avenue. 37572 was the replacement.
Michael reports 37564 as the latest Gemini on the X2, noted on the 14.08 Lowestoft - Norwich today, a turn which was worked by 20107 yesterday. 37567 on Y6 was swapped at Lowestoft for 37566 which Rob B had the pleasure of tonight with possibly the slowest ever driver on the section from Wisbech to Guyhirn (40mph max).
