Maintaining and running five Class 108 Diesel Multiole Unit Vehicles
The full five car set is now available for traffic, The Railways C&W having completed
the necessary repairs.
The units next date in service is the 30th June/1st July as a relief train at the
40’s weekend and the first Scenic Rail Cruise it will operate is the 14th July.
It is hoped that the three car unit will be available for traffic again from Friday
25th May, however the Scenic Evening Rail Cruises will continue to be loco hauled
until such time as the five car is available once again.
Apologies for the lack of website updates, your webmaster has been very busy recently.
As most of you are aware the unit is currently out of traffic receiving repairs
by the railways Carriage and Wagon Team.
It is hoped that the three car unit (52064/59250/51941) will be available for use
again by the end of May.
52064’s new engine has had an electic fan setup added during the time where the unit
has been out of traffic and this is hoped to be rolled out on all cars when time
The unit is currently out of service undergoing a door exam by
The railways C&W team, it is hoped that the three car unit will be available for
the first Scenic Cruise on April 21st.
Due to a change within Serif Web Resources which we use for our blog, unfortunately
as of the 1st April the blog will change on the the website.
Whilst we will continue to write the blog, it will not be possible for the archive
to go back more than a few months.
We will attempt to back up the archive onto a hard drive prior to this date and anyone
who wishes to view the archive document can contact us.
Back to the unit, unfortunately the unit is currently out of traffic until mid April
requiring some attention before it can be used in passenger service again, we hope
to have the unit back out on the 21st April.
