Its minus two out there and I'm sat waiting for a 66 and 73s to come in for fuelling at 6 o'clock.
Fuelling is something that we only started to support NR's test trains but is gradually growing to become an important part of our business. I have noticed however that the loco's never seem to come on shed during daylight hours or on nice sunny days. Still we'll take our business from wherever it comes, or at any hour.
The driver of tonight's loco is an old friend, being one of the first people to deliver off lease DMU's to us almost four years ago this month. Funny how much has happened in those four years. It was cold then too I seem to recall
