Saturday 8th October 2011 ~ The Phoenix

37158 and 37568 with adverts for 'Alone In The Wild' at King's Lynn on Friday evening.
So nothing of note happens for a whole week and then, a real surprise. This afternoon 37160 on K5 was in trouble in Great Yarmouth, reportedly with a loss of transmission oil and making  some pretty awful noises. The result being that tonight, on what was an absolutely dire evening of torrential rain, 20115 worked to Peterborough on the 14.42 from Yarmouth. Bruce met it near Guyhirn and I saw it just leaving Wisbech, the destination display is so dim, I wasn't sure exactly what it was until I read the reg plate.
This was the first B10M to appear in service through King's Lynn since 20126 on August 10th. The last time 20115 appeared in traffic here on an X1 was five months ago on May 7th.
37575 was spare at Lynn today, with 37565 still stopped for MOT. 37566 was again absent, presumably at Lowestoft.
