66782 (formerly 66046) has briefly appeared outside at Eastleigh.

66954 has been stored DHLT (Freightliner Locomotives Stored) at Leeds. It worked from Hinksey - Maritime last Saturday, and was on Maritime on Sunday, but was at Leeds by Tuesday. It is in the JP Morgan / Beacon leased group, which Freightliner chose to similarly store examples from in summer 2017, including this locomotive.The word by later in the week is that it may be about to be prepared for transfer to Freightliner Poland.

08585 is seen back at Maritime.

37884 and 47815 have been involved in a collision at Barrington. The damage to the 37 has resulted in a drooped nose - one two - which does not look very good for the Europhoenix owned locomotive, which was once stored at Eastleigh, and which had been having a good week. By Friday 19th the locomotives had been moved to the Foxton Exchange Sidings, with 37884's nose under a tarpaulin - one two three four five.                                                                    Discussion: one two.

97304 (previously 37217) has been involved in collision with a shed (agricultural and garden variety) near Newtown in Wales, in Storm Fionn.

Newton Abbot update: Network Rail have granted a lease for the Heathfield line - discussion.The Aldi plan proceeds, with demolition anticipated for the one time railway sheds.
