Saturday May 28th 2011 ~ Needs Must

A couple of days ago I was remarking on the rarity of a King's Lynn Scania working an entire X1 diagram. Today brought another example of this when 37563 which came off K1 last night was deemed unfit for service with an injector problem. With coach 20352 still undergoing maintenance, Scania 65532 was once again called upon to deputise on K3. December 15th 2007 was the last time a full turn was Scania worked on a Saturday !!

65532 heads past Boskoop Farm this afternoon while working K3 16.15 King's Lynn to Peterborough (12.55 ex Lowestoft). The telegraph pole is normally obscured by Geminis and I'd forgotten about it !
This morning I made a trip into Wisbech and was surprised to see 37565 running 16 late on Y7 and further on 37569 as L8 running just 5 late. L9 was not seen at all, but 37159 was on this duty and came in this evening as booked. 37575 on K16 was changed at Lowestoft for 37156 and later 575 was seen by Des arriving into Norwich at 17.30 on an X2.
Earlier in the day 37566 was in trouble at Hockering on K18 where it overheated. Fitters attended and this afternoon it was back on K18, seen below heading back to Lowestoft on the 15.35 from Peterborough.
