Dec 2004 moves and gen.

 

By December the majority of the "pendo's" umpteen teething problems had

been sorted and it was a case of chasing the "sevens" on their remaining West

Midlands turns. We still also had the "Cobblers" on our doorstop and the

 booked EWS 90's still misbehaved allowing 87 substitutions! Willesden depot's

line of off lease "sevens" grew during the year, a depressing site. 

 A problem in the  grey days immediately after Xmas with track conditions

in the New St area after a big dig, saw 87's return to scream down the Trent

Valley in some numbers for the last time .
