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.
