We have to advise that 55002 will not be available for the Jubilee Requiem rail tour on the 25th of October.
This is due to No 2 engine having a suspected fractured liner. We have narrowed it down to C bank. We are currently investigating the best option to repair the engine.
The loco at the moment is on a one engine restriction, but will carry on with duties for the NRM. A yard to yard is booked for Wednesday the 8th of October. The loco should also go back to Grosmont to collect D6700 at the end of the month.
Tour will still be going ahead but without Koyli taking part.
