70013 had a main line loaded test run on Tuesday 5th August round the Carnforth Blackburn Circuit. The route is about 90 miles and includes some West Coast Main Line.
She went like a dream and we have a certificate to prove it.
The inspector from the Vehicle Acceptance Body said “A superb machine, a credit to all who’ve worked on her”. Back on shed in the evening to smiles all round... followed by an early night ready for 30777 working the Dalesman over the S&C for Kingfisher Railtours on Wednesday (which also went well).
