Thursday 1st April 2021


The K1 has been operating between Grosmont and Battersby since Monday. The only problem with the loco encountered so far was an AWS failure on Tuesday. Angie. Mike B and I were at Grosmont when the loco returned to the shed so we were able to carry out a repair and clean the wheels, frames and rods while we were on. Our 22.00 finish was a little later than planned but it was worth the effort. Other than that all has been satisfactory.

The loco is due to work the Grosmont – Battersby service again tomorrow and, subject to confirmation, Grosmont – Whitby on Monday and Tuesday next week.
