Peterborough Testing, testing... (part 2)

Peterborough Photo: a fantastic Peterborough Photograph Featuring Testing, testing... (part 2)

Photograph Taken On Thursday, August 6, 2020

The DATS (Data Acquisition & Testing Services) OLE test train for the MML has recently had an upgrade - rather than using ROG 47s or 57s sandwiching its 2 ex-LNER 91s (91122 & 91128 "INTERCITY 50") and 8 Mk3a coaches, it now uses ex-EMR 43s 43054 & 43066 for propulsion. I don't think a formation like this has been seen since BR did tests for an HST-E! With calibration now nearly complete for the train's onboard computer systems, 43054 (leading) & 43066 coast southwards past Werrington Junction on 3Q45, the 1256 test run from Doncaster back to Peterborough Eastfield Junction. Note that the pantographs on 91128 & 91122 are raised for data collection. Taken from the Werrington Grade Separation worksite...working on that project certainly has its perks! Shot from a position of safety in view of an ALO Co-ordinator.View image on Flickr
