68002 & 68004, Old Linslade, 0Z68, 1st August 2014
My first sighting of the new Class 68s was 0Z68, 07:04 from Crewe Gresty Bridge DRS depot and consisted of 68002 "Intrepid" together with 68004 "Rapid". The pair are seen approaching Old Linslade on the WCML running on time at 09:59¼ on Friday 1st August 2014. Once the locos arrived in the Willesden area they were split, with 68002 continuing to Chiltern's Wembley LMD whilst 68004 was bound for Norwich Crown Point depot, both locos to be used for crew training for the time being.
