Blanche and Linda reunited

Blanche and Linda reunited

Linda has been out of traffic for part of 2017 whilst attention was given to the bottom motion and fitting of a new pony truck.

Blanche, meanwhile, was withdrawn from traffic over the weekend of May Bank Holiday 2016 for the obligatory ten-year overhaul. Reassembly was progressing over the Summer and Blanche was ready for testing in November.

The two sisters were reunited for the Christmas week trains, commencing Boxing Day, handling 8-carr trains each day. Including, on 29th December, when the weather conditions were somewhat wintry.
