37612 rescues failed 56312 on 5Z56 Kilmarnock to Laira
DRS 37612 leads Virgin barrier coaches MK2s 3344 and 5952 and recently refurbished FGW MK3s coaches 42385 and 42501 (converted from previously FGW MK3 Buffet cars) sandwiched inbetween the barriers, powering south at Ashchurch on the 26th June 2012. The consist had originated from Kilmarnock Barclay at 08:20 as 5Z56 with DCR loco 56312 in charge (56312 now without the Railfest branding). However, unfortunately the Grid failed whilst working the train and was dumped in Eden Valley Goods Loop before being rescued by DRS 37612. The Grid was inevitably dropped off at Washwood Heath and the Growler continued with 5Z56 to Laira about 3 hours behind schedule.
