57312 was restored to traffic from 4th July

Further to the report of 16th February, 57312 is back in traffic following repairs at Eastleigh Works.

The first workings recorded was a 0Y68 with 57305 on 4th July, confirmed at wnxxforum. There is a picture of the locomotive departing on its test run.

That may have been a close one, but this locomotive does appear to be needed by Network Rail, and lease conditions are believed to require that it is eventually returned in similar condition to that which it was delivered.
