Following our last progress report just before Christmas there are several updates to share with you:
- All power door silver set trains and Class 172 trains are now back in service following recent repairs.
- Unfortunately, as mentioned in our previous update, one of our 4 car trains suffered an operational incident.
This train will be sent away for structural repairs during the week commencing 12th January.
It is likely that the train will be out of service for 5-6 months.
- Following a challenging end to the leaf fall season, we have two vehicles awaiting wheelset changes.
The required material is on site at Aylesbury depot and work is scheduled to be completed this week.
- Currently the wheel lathe at Aylesbury depot is defective and unable to reprofile defective wheelsets.
Work to repair this piece of equipment is a high priority and the we expect the work to be completed over the next few days.
All other vehicles currently at the depot are stopped for scheduled maintenance activities.
