Azuma shunt at Eastleigh, 20th December 2019

801219, a LNER nine car electric Azuma, was moved from Eastleigh Works to the T&RSMD carriage sidings on the afternoon of Friday 20th. There is a single 'emergency' diesel engine in these units, which allows shunt manoeuvres to be accomplished.

PDTS 821219 leads the formation into platform 2 from the works.

The diesel engine sounded as it were under MS 822219.

TS 826219.

The Aberdeen destination is rather optimistic for an electric Class 801.

PDTRBF 829219.

The Azuma then proceeded to the carriage sidings.
