The 'Western Glory' - Western Champion News

D1015 'Western Champion' suffered a serious problem to one of its two engines during the latter part of its haulage of our 'Yuletide East Yorkshireman' excursion on 17 December. It successfully completed the last few miles of the run on one engine.

 

The locomotive's owners, The Diesel Traction Group (DTG), have now removed and inspected the problematic engine to ascertain what course of action is needed which results in the locomotive not being available for most of 2017 whilst the engine is re-built.

 

As this excursion is an important one we are working with Network Rail, DB Cargo and the DTG to see if a new date of operation can be agreed.
