Wednesday October 12th 2011 ~ Overheating

37160 continued to play up today. It was sent out from Lynn on K16 and managed Ok until just after it had departed on the 13.15 King's Lynn to Peterborough. It was diverted into Vancouver Avenue where it was seen with what looked like water pouring from the engine compartment. Eventually it was sorted and left 25 minutes late but its late arrival in Peterborough saw it return light to Lynn, where once again it had to receive fitters attention for overheating. 160 was booked to continue K16 at 16.02 to Lowestoft, however, it didn't leave the garage until 16.16 and was seen passing Southgates roundabout at 16.29, about 22 late.
37566 remained over the pits at Lynn today while its air build up problem continued to be fixed. 37572 was in trouble for the second day running, but not through anything mechanical this time. It was taken off  K4 as it required cleaning after a passenger was unwell. The 19.35 to Lowestoft was taken instead by 37565 which had come into Lynn on Y9.
There was an unusual Lowestoft swap this morning. K17 had 37569, but this was replaced by 37158 for the 10.25 to Peterborough. K18 then came in with 37156 and had this swapped for 37569 leaving 156 as the Lowestoft spare in place of 158.
Timekeeping was average today. 37158 had lost 10 minutes by Wisbech on K17, while in the morning 37570 on Y6 was 8 late from Wisbech westbound, but returned spot on time.
A slight diversion has been instituted in Yarmouth for a few days thus :
