Thursday 29th September 2011 ~ Sunshine = Delays

Extremes of weather always seem to have a derogatory effect on X1 timekeeping. Today while many services ran roughly to time, others for reasons unknown were way off course. L8 with 37565 was not seen departing Wisbech to Peterborough at 09.48, I may have missed it, but was marginally early returning from Peterborough. L11 with 37579 managed to be 9 late in each direction as was K14 with 37157. K15 was 10 late with 37571, but then K16 encountered delays making it 27 late on the 14.35 from Peterborough, by which time 37575 on K17 was just 6 minutes behind it. Things then settled down a bit before K3 16.15 King's Lynn to Peterborough also turned up 26 late with 37160 - it had only been 5 late in the morning. Again the following service, K4 was hot on its heels, 37573 on this was 6 late.
The MOT on 37563 has been postponed until Monday, which may be to do with extra work being taken on from Norwich - today Solo 53118 had arrived at Lynn, also for MOT.
Temporary lights at Middleton were being set up today, but were not in operation when Des passed. 37156 was again seen in Norwich on the X2 at 12.45.
