Class 92 testing
|Although I was not involved with testing and commissioning
of the class 92 locomotives several of my colleagues spent many happy hours
testing the locos.
More of them undertook the commissioning role, riding the locos from Wembley in the UK through the Tunnel to Frethun, near Calais in France, never knowing whether they would be sleeping in the UK on in the back cab 'somewhere in France'
Here are a few pictures of the 92's on test.......
