700 on more mileage accumulation runs
Chris Livings has reported on mileage accumulation runs for 700 class units.
Last weekend 17/18th Class 700 was run between Three Bridges and Eastbourne. Scheduled for three runs on the Saturday but only ran one. Then also scheduled for three runs for the Sunday with all three trips featuring 700053, he is not sure if this unit also ran on the Saturday.
He assumes this must of been mileage accumulation runs but have no inside knowledge.
Also 700138 ran down to Eastbourne from Three Bridges on the 9th of Feb for warm storage replacing 700133 which returned same day. He has no photographs of this working.
Thank you Chris for this information. Photographs copyright Chris Livings
