After overcoming the coolant loss issue that cut short the test running on Tuesday 9th, D7017 was put through her paces on an 60-mile diagram on Wednesday 10th and performed faultlessly, much to the delight of the volunteers who had been working to prepare her and crew her.

Thursday’s running will start at Williton at 0945 and cover 50 miles, terminating at Williton at 1610. See the DIESELGEN posting for more details:
