37156 was sidelined at King's Lynn today following another overheating episode. I suppose with these B7s being operated to their maximum speed for long periods, they probably are likely to do this. Especially, as is currently the case with 37156/7/8, when the fans appear to get stuck creating that loud racket which you may be familiar with. Today 37157 was 9 late from Wisbech on the 12.18 to Peterborough (Y13), but by the time it came back, the delay had increased to 22 minutes.
Syd says "As you are no doubt aware, it was the Lord Mayors thing in Norwich, and many central area roads closed from 1500hrs causing mayhem. Most City services ran via the Bus Station making it like Central London...buses everywhere.
Well this does explain how 37157 still came to be on Y13 tonight Syd - a crafty empty to Lowestoft to form the 17.48 to Peterborough ! On Saturdays, Y13 is the week's quickest turn around as it only comes in to Lowestoft 8 minutes before it departs back westbound. Here's our final picture and yes, it's 37157 again, taken tonight after a torrential storm, the passengers on Y13 are being treated to a diversion into King's Lynn garage for 157 to refuel. The service departed here at 21.03, about 8 minutes late.
